Nerdy Birdy: A Quick Opportunity

Sometimes my owl friend will call me last minute. They were taking a group out the mountain tonight. They had a spot for me to join them if I wanted. And they were hoping to get the spotted owl they had last night again tonight. I was super excited to go. After getting a sitter for the kids and having Mr. Rogue agree to come home a bit early from work I was off to meet the group for the mountains.

We got to the top of the mountain a little before dusk. So we got settled to wait for it to get a little darker. It was cold but the mountains as the sun set were gorgeous.

I was hoping to see the saw-whet owl. But although we called for it at almost every single stop of the 30 stops we made we didn’t hear a peep. Owlbait did however get the spotted owl they found last night to come out again. The bird came in VERY close and sat for a good few minutes allowing me to get my lighting perfect. What a magnificent bird. I am getting better at this owl photography business.
