"Raptors and Cats" No update on Burrowing owls just yet, though I am expecting an email from Fish and Wildlife.
Not at all impressed with the burrowing owl conservation network. (If their is such a thing)
I am still going to get some answers from someone on these issues.
Had to reach back to some B side photos for a couple of these as my luck and chasing time has been slightly off during the last month. It is a beautiful springtime out there, even the cattle ponds are holding water... Interesting note: For the first time ever, I have found more bobcats the last two months than coyotes. And everywhere I go someone says " I saw five coyotes out here this morning".
That's the beauty of wildlife I guess.
