Fort De Soto  Park  is becoming one of my  favorite  spots to see wildlife. Ospreys seem to be flying everywhere you look with fish grasped in their talons and  spoonbills are foraging through shallow waters, sweeping their bills from side to side. But my favorite birds to see are the great horned owls.

The great horned owl is one of the most stunning and powerful of the owls.  Their range includes most parts of North and South America. Great horned owls raise their young in the abandoned nests of crows, hawks, and eagles.
