found the owl in the same area as last time but on the opposite side of a creek from me; there are no large nests in the area so wonder what is going on in terms of that

finally caught up with her on a sunny day; when she first saw me and heard me she took off, but fortunately she didn't go far and tolerated me getting pretty close when I did it just a little at a time
