Owlets Hatch in Silver Lake

A great horned owl family is living at the southern end of the reservoir.
Sometimes a picture really is worth a thousand words, like these shots of a two great horned owls and their owlets nesting near the Silver Lake Reservoir. The photos, submitted by a resident who lives nearby, provide a close up look at the wide range wildlife that lives in or nearby the reservoir complex, including the protected great blue heron. This fascinating video shows another great horned owl living in Los Angeles. The Nature Conservancy reminds us that man is the biggest threat to owls and asks that people observe them from afar.
