I was walking up the trail to look at the long-eared owls at Mercer Meadows. I asked a photographer coming toward me about the owls. He stated that he and another photographer had "just kept creeping closer and closer to the owls to get the best photo - until they all flew away". I released a chain of expletives in his direction. The owls were not more than 20 feet from the trail. Why is it so hard for these "photographers" to be satisfied with a shot that completely fills their viewfinder or to crop a photo?

I am hoping the owls simply move to another roost farther away from the trail where they will not be harassed by dim-wits like this guy.

One of my non botany goals this year is night birding. So I thought
I would get started! The winds had died down. Thats probably the biggest
factor for a night listen. Plus a place I can be next to my car. As long as
the gates are open, this is a good spot!
GHO and Screech are calling. Barred is not. And nothing more rare!

I hope to manage some night birding twice a month. We will see.....

The roads were bad - thats the norm here! Not a clue when they regrade.
Probably next fall before hunting picks up again. Just drive slow. I did it in
my tiny little car!

Good birding all.
