A Great Day on the Ranch

October 20, 2018  •  1 Comment

I caught a glimpse of what I thought might be a Great Gray Owl while we were on one of our favorite walks at Black Butte Ranch on 4 October 2018.  Today we repeated that walk but kept our border collie, Remy, close as we approached the area where I thought she flushed a large gray bird sixteen days earlier.  It was a strategy that paid off!  This has been a nemesis species for us and while I won't bore you with our story of the miles we have driven and hiked purposefully-unguided to find a Great Gray Owl, I will say that after all of that effort it was thrilling to find this species so close to home.
