Owls duetting El Cerrito

A pair of Great Horned Owls were calling steadily in duet from 6:30  to 7:30 pm from backyards near Tassajara Park in El Cerrito Wednesday night. They were species number 75 for the day, capping an unforgettable birding day , beginning with seeing a single flock of 10,000 to 30,000 Snow and Ross’s Geese liftoff along I-5 in Yolo County. It rose and undulated north up away from valley, catching a powerful warm south tail wind, brilliantly lit against a backdrop of retreating charcoal storm clouds.
Good birding!
