Owl Will Always Love Birding

At first, when I spotted this owl on the Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge auto tour, I thought it was a species I'd never seen before, like a Short-eared owl...

I didn't see any tufted "ears" and thought for sure I had a new bird to add to my lifelist. (Dang, that tree branch is right in the way!)
But after some detective work, we're pretty sure this is a newly fledged Great Horned Owl...
 Either way, you won't hear me complain about spotting an owl!

Tomorrow's post includes pics of my all-time favorite bird, a cute flycatcher, and a strange sighting...
