Long-eared Owls at Avimor

I went to check on Avimor's Long-eared Owls this morning with a gentleman from Garden Valley who had never seen them before.  Momma was still hunkered down on her nest so low that you could barely see her ear tufts and one eye.  We were able to successfully find the mate as seen in the photo.  Boy they are hard to photograph!  He seems to be saying "I know its hard to see me, but I sure see you!"

Pheasants were calling and we flushed a pair of Gray Partridges.  We also saw some Nashville Warblers flitting about the tops of the Hackberry trees, which is a first of year bird for me!

  1. I'm way too jealous that you have a "neighborhood" Long-eared Owl.
