Baby Burrowing Owl

Baby burrowing owl

We went back to Salton Sea in hopes of spotting some baby burrowing owls. We saw a few nests, and several smallish owls. Then Chris spotted this baby owl alone. We did see and hear several adult owls nearby. We left for a while and when we returned it was gone, so we are hopeful it found its burrow.

Here's some photos of some of the adults.

Back to Prado

We always post pictures of vermilon flycatchers when we go to Prado.

I'll start with the green heron instead

But the vermilion flycatcher was there, and it's hard not to photograph.
