Last fall the male Great Horned Owl that  lived in Glen Canyon was found dead. A necropsy revealed that he had eaten a poisoned mouse or rat.  With his demise  many all been concerned about the mating prospects this year. No nesting activity had been observed.

But today Evelyn Rose of the Tramps of San Francisco blog, wrote with excellent news. On Tuesday she and a friend looked at the owls’ tree with binoculars  and it appears the female of the pair is sitting in the nest.

She wonders if anyone has seen eggs?

    Thanks for this post. I hope she is sitting on eggs. How can we convince our neighbors that poisoning pesky rodents is a really bad idea.

    I’ve been watching the owl’s nest since the beginning of March. While I’ve seen an adult in the nest, no owlets. If the owls are brooding, it would be very late in the season.
