Northern Pygmy Owl in Sunol
I saw my first Northern Pygmy Owl in Sunol Regional Wilderness today!
Not sure how frequently they're encountered in Sunol, but I thought it
was pretty cool. Check out pics and location at
Other highlights for me were a passel of raptors, Rock Wrens,
Chestnut-capped Sparrow, and some weird-looking sparrows that I'm
assuming were Savannahs, though they were super light and gray. If
you're curious you can check out the rest of my observations at
