Houdini the Owl

MR 942

Meet the elusive Houdini. I have been monitoring this owl for about 5 years now. Normally we find the birds, offer them prey and if they are nesting will fly to their nest, or young, or mate… This is how you define a spotted owls territory and thus are able to protect it from nearby logging. Every so often a owl pair will not play along. Like this one, who has never shown me a nest. In fact they always disappear in the prime nesting weeks. The male here, is not shy however. As long as I bring gifts…

    1. It sort of depends on where you are. Mad River zones really bad. Willow Creek and Trinity River areas bad. Not too bad on the coast, but we still have a reddish orange sheen no matter where you are in the County. You guys have any fires your way?
