COUNTDOWN TO MOUNTAIN BIRD FESTIVAL

The pressure is on this year. Saturday marks the start of Klamath Bird OBservatory’s Mountain Bird Festival.  Our logo is the Great Gray Owl and we want to show our attendees an active nest.

Great Gray Owls nested much earlier due to a general lack of winter weather here in the southern Cascades this past season.  Two known GGO nests hereabouts have already fledged.  Late today Laurie and Lee French phoned with exciting news: a GGO nest visible from a public road with one owlet still in the nest.  36 hours from now will the owlet still be in the broken-off trunk where it was born?  Late today the Frenches pointed me in the right direction to see both the brancher (fledgling) and the nestling, then pointed out mom on alert nearby:brancher ggo lookin' ggo (697x1280) two ggowlets
