      Sat, 09 Feb 2013 - This afternoon three BURROWING OWLS were visible sunning
      themselves at burrow mouths near the end of Burris Lane in Potter Valley.
      One was the continuing owl at the base of the hill to the SW of the high
      spot in the road near the pond. Today it was sitting up high and was easily
      visible.
      The other two owls were at locations to the SE where I have never seen
      them before. These sites are not visible from the top of the hill, but it
      is necessary to walk down the hill to the east and look across the
      right-hand gate at the end of the road. The owls were on the distant
      hillside beyond the truck which has been parked there for several months -
      one owl to the left and one to the right. In the afternoon sun they could
      be seen easily with binoculars, but a scope is best.
      Also continuing were a 1st-winter FERRUGINOUS HAWK, a LEWIS'S
      WOODPECKER, and 3 CANVASBACKS.
