Owl sitting on the branch of a cottonwood tree in the sun. It swooped down into underbrush.
We had a pair of owls hooting around us. The sound track is one owl with a series of hoots, then a soft whine at the end of the track. we actually did see the owl high up in the tree, but too dark for photos.
Male hooting to female on nest across the eucalyptus grove just before dusk. You can see his inflated throat as he is hooting.
Female incubating eggs on nest. The barest minimum of a nest, set in between the base of a split eucalyptus treee.
In a tree. Had just been released from a rehabilitation center. Hard to see in the picture.
3 almost fully feathered chicks in nest
Around midnight at the Pinnacles campground, three owls calling to one another. We found this one with a flashlight.
