One Burrowing Owl arrived in Cesar Chavez Park today. Credit for first-to-spot belongs to Mary Law, who saw the bird at 8:30 this morning. The bird is perched in approximately the same spot where the “First Owl” of this past winter perched near the end of the season. That’s in the rocks on the east side of the Burrowing Owl Sanctuary, near one of the big bushes toward the southern side. You can see it from the paved perimeter trail if you know exactly where to look between the rocks. I completely missed it when I passed the spot at about 10:30, but returned to the scene and took these images late in the afternoon thanks to Mary’s tip. I hope to have brighter and fuller images tomorrow.
