These great horned owls have been
fun to photograph for the past decade. With a nest located in a grove of
Cottonwood Trees, the owls live above a two acre sized opening that provides
perches, cover, and prey for there growing family. Sometimes we have
fledglings in the nest, sometimes not, but the adults are very active and easy
to photograph. While at this location there will be opportunities to
photograph a multitude of songbirds.
To ride with me we can meet 5am at my home if you are coming from the
north, or 6am in Bakersfield, or 7am in Mohave, for the drive into the mountains
on the eastern side of the Sierras. Four wheel drive is not required.
The location is approximately 30 miles north of Mohave. The weather can be
cool to cold, with the day warming into the 50's or 60's. Also, it is
advisable to bring a lunch and plenty of water, and a camp chair can be handy as
well. There is a $25 gas split.
