~ I was down at Salton Sea, and saw many, many Burrowing Owls. Apparently the babies are up and out of the burrows, and the numbers are visibly up. I liked this feisty little guy who was enforcing the no trespassing rules. He stood straight up like this, alternating with lowering to an offensive position and hissing at me. I didn't trespass.
