Owl Woods • March 17

At lunch today I went down to Owl Woods and ended up having a most productive owling run! Together with fellow bird photographer Ed Siler, we found and photographed three Northern Saw-whet Owls, based on some helpful directions from Andy Garland and a few other birders in attendance over the noon hour. Simultaneously, there was a magnificent raptor migration overhead today, with the sky filled with hawks, vultures, and eagles. It would have been an ideal day to follow up Owl Woods with the hawkwatch platform, but, alas, I had to return to work. :-)
