Red-shouldered Hawk ~ This hawk was photographed near the small town of Baywood, along the shore of Morro Bay, perched in a pine tree of some kind.
Barn Owl Close-up ~ This Barn Owl looks as if I disturbed his sleep on this day. He did not seem disturbed that I was photographing him, however.
Barn Owl in the Rafters ~ This Barn Owl was roosting in the upper rafters in a local produce stand. I asked permission to photograph him. He was the last of two young birds that had been hatched in a nest in the building. The first owlet to fledge had left two days earlier. I was glad this one waited around for me to see and photograph it!
