It was a pleasant afternoon and a half decent crowd at Reifel when I arrived to help out on the trails today. A favourite visitors are always asking about is owls,
… and much to their delight one of the Great Horned Owls was in a decent spot for viewing today. While the adults and two juveniles this year have been viewable from a distance earlier in the year, this was probably the closest one has been in a while.
With not much else happening,
… I decided to spend some time with the Dowitchers.
They were in the southwest field along with some Yellowlegs,
… with a few taking advantage of the great day for a little bathing.
