Since my boreal owl nests did not materialize and I never picked up a great gray nest (and believe me, I spent many hours searching west of Pebble Creek), I settled on a great horned nest situated at the foot of Beartooth Butte.
This nest worked for me for a number of reasons. One, it was on the way to Beartooth Pass which I drive up to 4 or 5 times a week. Two, I could actually film it with Beartooth Butte in fhe background which connects it with anything Beartooth related and three, it was a cool nest.
Every nest seems to have a story and this one was the weather. I photographed them in snowstorms, heavy rain, wind and heat. Horned owls are hardy. Both chicks eventually fledged on July 7th.
