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.
