The 1st photo from site, other 2 mine but I apologize for lack of sharpness. 1st time there and was using my 35mm lens with 2x. Had no flash. When I was there 2 years ago was lucky to see 2 Barred Owl chicks before 1st flight. Saw Mom & Dad also along with many other birds. Highly recommend. http://www.scholtz.org/bill/nature/Locations/Corkscrew.html
