One of the nice things about April in the desert southwest is the new birth of animal life, especially the birds. This April I was very fortunate to find some Great Horned Owlets nestled into the arms of a huge Saguaro cactus. Although relatively common in this area, it was only my second opportunity to photograph them. Within a week of my finding them, they had all fledged and started their new lives on the wing. What a treat! Owls weren’t the only birds I encountered, so here are some of my favorites from the month.
