Another Burrowing Owl sighting

I had heard a report from a visitor to CMO that he had seen a Burrowing Owl along Highway 118 coming south of Alpine. I hadn't seen any there since the horrible record drought, heat, and cold of 2011, but I looked on my way down from Alpine early this evening in the place they used to be and actually saw one. That tells me they're back nesting there. That's great!

I was past the owl before I could get stopped. Didn't want to back up and chance flushing it, so just took this long distance documentary shot, looking into the setting sun of course.


  1. Thank you Carolyn for sharing your wonderful birds!!! I am delighted to know they have such a wonderful refuge!!!
