Letting Sleeping Owls Lie in the Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge

We had a long drive home from Oregon this past weekend, but we couldn't just pass up the Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge near Williams in the northern Great Valley. There's a six mile long autotour that rarely disappoints. As we passed a lone tree along a section of the tour, a tree called the "Owl Tree", we were surprised beyond measure that it contained a pair of Great Horned Owls (Bubo virginianus). Neither one seemed overly concerned that we were driving by (and babbling with excitement).

It was a good day at the refuge. Look for a few more pics before long...
