FESTIVAL DAY 1

The Mountain Bird Festival got underway today.  Our Great Gray Owl nest trip was almost upended by an early spring nesting season.  We saw no owlets still on the nest but did find three fledglings in two separate locations.  Here’s one in an aspen tree: GGOWLETHere is the owlet’s fan club.GGOWLET FANSMountain Bluebird.  He and mate are raising young in a nest nestled inside this rock cairn.
