  1. Like someone else mentioned, they are only here in Winter, and aren't common even then. Add on that, if you see one, they are one of the hardest birds to get a decent picture of, because they move so fast and constantly, so I am very pleased when I do get a picture!!! I have only gotten a few 🤣

  7. I have an older one I really like, in the nest, and got a bunch recently watching a frenzy of nest building and mating at a local lake...

  16. Mojave Desert. This Great Horned Owl has some serious camouflage sitting in this Joshua Tree. This photo was taken today at dusk.

  18. Yet another visit from a Great Horned Owl to my Mojave Desert waterhole this morning. This makes 3 days in a row all before dawn. This photo was taken at 5:26 am. They have been staying for about 20 minutes. I have heard their Ca-Coooing sound many times at night and always thought they were calling there mate, but I found they also make that sound when they are standing right next to each other. Got a profile shot of this one admiring my waterhole.

  22. I bellyflopped in several inches of mucky freshwater in an attempt to get an eye level shot of a pair of Least Sandpipers, and then crawled on my elbows to get closer. (Probably should have removed my coat before doing this) I had also forgotten about the existence of leeches until one bit my stomach...anyways, I think it was worth it in the end! I got probably the best shot I’ll ever get of the species, and was treated to awesome views as they foraged and preened. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/342830091

  25. Have two favorites from today. The Barred Owls were a very pleasant surprise. Yes there are owls here but with all the vegetation for cover we rarely see them.

  31. The eye has it. In reviewing the pics of the Bluebirds feeding the babies, I was amazed to notice the details visible in the eye. You can see the sun and the clouds covering it with mixed blue skies, the corner of the bird box roof, the outline of the back of my house, and even the camera tripod in his eye.
