Great Horned Owls at Pancho Villa
Two years ago when I was camped here at Pancho Villa I was surprised to find owls nesting in the park and was delighted to get a chance to photograph them. I made a few posts about them at the time and I'll put a link to them below. I didn't get down here last year but I've been told they again raised a family and entertained the park visitors.
I've been here since February 13th and I'm beginning to think I may be a little early. I've only heard them hooting a few times and saw them one night after dark surveying the nest site in a tree on the south edge of the park. Hopefully they'll choose to nest here and give us all a show this spring. The 23rd was the first time I found one roosting in the pine during the day and was able to get a few decent images.
