I've been staking out this barn with a pair of great horns nesting in it for a week or so. Unfortunately the lighting is really bad when the sun is out. I've tried so many different places to get out of the glair from behind the car to holding up a blanket! So I found out who owns the barn and they are 100 miles away from here so I couldn't just ask them for permission to go near their barn. Then my husband noticed that there weren't any "no trespassing" signs around. So I ran up to the gate and went around to snap this quick picture and ran back to the car. No harm no foul I think. I know this isn't exactly within the birding codes but not exactly against them either. I'm sure others have tried various things to get just the right photo.
I hope to get them both at some point.
