Subject: [MBBIRDS] Superb Owl Sunday
While the rest of the country celebrated commercialism by watching overpaid
genetic freaks prance around in garish clothing (describes both the
half-time show and the game), some of us returned to nature with a twilight
Little Sit at Palo Corona Regional Park. We set up where the park and the
South Bank Trail come together (where the bobcat is usually seen). Aside
from a glorious sunset, we saw a flock of about a dozen red-shafter
flickers, some bluebirds, white- and golden-crowned sparrows guilding
together, and other members of the usual cast of characters. Everyone was
chowing down in the interval between rains. As darkness approached, the
great horned owls started moving down the mountainsides above us, and we
heard at least two females and a male. I saw what was probably a barn owl
or accipiter streaking from cover to cover. As night fell and we were
obliged to vacate the park, the Palo Corona Coyote Chorus serenaded us on
our way.
