I photographed a Great Horned Owl Flying at the Headquarters of Malheur NWR. Report on Last Two Days at Malheur NWR. I just returned from two days at Malheur. Lots of flooded fields near Burns. Saw most of the Sandhill Cranes in the fields driving south from Burns to Malheur Malheur Lake at the Narrows is totally dry, not even a mud puddle. You can walk around headquarters and the rest rooms are open but not the visitor center. Saw two Great Horned Owls in the trees around headquarters. I had the best luck along Ruh-red road. Lots of flooding in the fields. Saw Burrowing Owl, Golden Eagle, Horned Larks, Western Meadowlarks, Franklin's Gulls,Whimbrel and my first sighting and photo of a Badger. Drove the CPR Road auto route from point 1 to point 8. Very dry didn't see much of anything but the Blitzen river did have water in it. Photography by Jim Leonard.. Click on link below for photos.
