Owls

Most mornings in the past month or so we have heard a couple of owls calling from a tree right behind our coach here in Jojoba Hills SKP Resort. At 5:30 or 6 in the morning I am not likely to jump out of bed and run outside to look for them. Recently I have heard them at dusk when sitting quiet. Usually by the time I react it is too dark for viewing or photos. A few days a go I went out, without a camera and before I could see them I spooked them into flying off, it was a pretty sight, but brief and no camera.

This afternoon I heard them and grabbed my Cannon G16 and ran out the door. Here are two photos of one of the two owls:
The other owl flew off while Carol and I were watching, we never saw it until it took wing. You can enlarge the images by clicking on them.

It would appear that some part of our world is not affected directly by the insanity in our government.

  1. Is it a Horned owl? We have Barred owls behind our house but rarely see them in the daylight. You were quite lucky. We agree, enjoying nature is what keeps us sane.

    1. It is a Great Horned Owl, The call alone, which I have not captured, is signature enough. I was surprised to be able to see it and had to run back to get my camera since it was sitting in plain sight as you can see. There was a second one which I did not see until it flushed.
