Today while visiting Home Depot, my husband notice a Great Horned Owl in the rafters of the store in the garden area. He called me to tell me he was looking at a Great Horned Owl at Home Depot…I asked if it was real or a plastic one, not believing what he was telling me…He said it was for real!
Later, I had to go back to see for myself…Sure enough, there the owl was sleeping in the rafters. I didn’t have my tripod but I did have my camera, and I took a snapshot for other non believers like me….The photography isn’t great, but you can see the Owl sitting up there in the rafters fast asleep….
It turns out that a couple of Great Horned Owls live there and have for several years. They come and go as they please…Last year, they hatched two babies at the Home Depot Garden center. Oddly enough, the owls are not afraid of people and sleep during the day….
It certainly makes an interesting story and sight to see! I’ll be going back to that home Depot! I wonder if they will be hatching more owlettes this Spring?
