Owls, owls and hawks

I'm fortunate to live right next to a great patch of desert that currently has two Great Horned Owl nests and a Harris Hawk nest within a 15 minute walk.   South of Carefree Highway and just east of I-17.

I've been wondering if I should invite Phoenix-area shooters out to photograph them.  There are two baby owls (at least) in one nest, and nest-sitting behavior going on in the other two.   In years past the first nest typically produces 4 chicks.  You can see former residents grow up in my Arizona Desert shots at

I expect to see both owl and hawk chicks fledging and getting bigger here over the next 4-6 weeks or so, at which time they'll all disappear for cooler climes until next January.
