Madison County Snowy Owl
After seeing social media posts over the last week of a Snowy Owl in Madison County, we decided to join the Snowy Owl club and make the short drive to see it. As predicted, the owl was perched in the Moen Parking lot on rt 40 in Madison County....the same location where it had been for several days.
Many observers and photographers were present, so we parked and walked toward the crowd. Within 10 minutes of our arrival, the owl flew off, and we were able to catch a couple of nice flight shots.
We stayed around for about 30 minutes, then headed home. I've since seen that the owl is back at the same location.

Our Travels as Seen from the Navigator Seat....
Well, I shot over 5000 images on our 5,000 mile trip. We traveled from Ohio to Canyonland in Utah, then on to visit our son & family in Southern California. From there, we went southeast through Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. David drove every single mile. I offered to drive, but he assured me he was quite happy with me being navigator/photographer.
Just for fun, here are some of the shots I took through the drivers side window.

Fox Kits at Magee Marsh
The stars of the show at Magee this year were not birds!
Instead, these adorable Fox Kits stole all of the attention. Their den was located on the Estuary Trail and visitors ooohhhed and ahhhed over the babies.
Who could not stop to take a look?
CJ Brown and Old Reid Birds Today....
A few favorites from CJ Brown and Old Reid today.
One of my favorite parts of my outtings is helping new wildlife watchers to see the natural world. It was fun showing a couple of hikers the beauty of the bird world!
