walking out on the Permanente Creek trail from Amphitheater Pkwy downstream, saw a lot of ground squirrels on the hill; on the way back, I saw two objects (or subjects) on the hill and decided against hope to get my binoculars on them. They turned out to be two Burrowing owls! One was considerably smaller and more russet in color than the other one. My assumption is that it was a juvenile. They seemed to be standing near their burrow and not disturbed by one squirrel nearby.
