Great Horned Owl, Spruce Coulee, CHIP
I heard this juvenile Great Horned owl screeching while I was out enjoying the Cypress Hills of Alberta. Recognizing the sound as a young owl begging its parents for food, I slowly made my way through the trees and found it perched in a relatively open area. The owl could be somewhat embarrassed, since it was October when I photographed it. That makes this owl a 'teenager' and perhaps should be hunting, rather than begging.
