A trip to Hood River Co, part 3: Northern Pygmy-Owl (OR, 05/09/10)

I was incredibly lucky to see 3 Northern Pygmy-Owls from 15ft or less. 2 more were further away. 3 out of 5 also were in oak dominated habitat. My first bird along Old Dalles Rd practically landed on my head.

This a second bird, along Elder Rd.

I thought it might be interesting to take a closer look at the talons of a bird straight up from where I stood.

  1. Ok, you’re right, I don’t like it :-) Very jealous over here.

    Are you sure you didn’t take these at the zoo where you have a bird keeping friend who let you into the exhibit? Just kidding…

    These photos are absolute amazing! Good birding and excellent photography!
