OWL at Pt Reyes?
- I know this isn't Mendo County related but we thought you might help us with
an ID. We were birding at the old RCA site at Pt Reyes around noon today in
a bunch of cypress trees when we saw several owls fly by. We continued
trying to get views of them for about an hour but never were able to get the
scope on them. I got them in my binoculars once in a tree and could
definitely see it was an owl, about the size of a barn owl, no noticeable
ears, pale underside with a few black spots or streaks. Feathery wings and
very pale when flying. Any idea? Oh and tuffy on the top of the head. We
wondered if this could have been an juvenile great horned. Thanks!
