We met this barn owl in Antelope Valley California. (Please click to enlarge).

He was rescued due to an injured wing and lives in a California state park named Velasquez Rocks (more on this park later).

The Holler Hawks have been flying closer lately!

Sometimes quite close over my head which is a big thrill.

They have figured out I am not a threat to them.

I can identify different hawks by their missing feathers.

The best way to see a hawk of course is in free flight!

    • I am getting a barn owl box when I get home. The county gives them to you if you agree to maintain it. The owls return each year and I am excited to see the hatching process. I hear them calling all the time. You can even get them with a camera in the box but this I won’t do………unless I find a read deal and read up on it! Cheers to you Sarah~
