Kern River Valley CBC - owl show
- Birders: Gary File and I worked the KRV CBC, 40 miles east of
Bakersfield, today, beginning at a little after midnight in 23-degree
temperatures to listen and look for owls. And it was a very good
night: 15 GREAT HORNED OWLS, 1 SPOTTED OWL, 1 NORTHERN SAW-WHET OWL,
and 1 NORTHERN PYGMY-OWL. The rest of the day was uneventful, except
for a COMMON LOON at French Gulch Marina, on Lake Isabella. We ended
up with only 36 species. But the owls were worth it.
