Long-eared owls

Long-eared owls

I was in Ridgecrest, California yesterday and returned to the cemetery where our birding group had seen a family of long-eared owls.  I walked for a half hour peering in every tree (they’re extremely well camouflaged as you can see) when I found them almost right next to the car!

This pair was very alert, but the other two owls resented being awoken from their naps.

Anyway, here are their portraits.
