The Great Horned Owl Plus More

Good morning to all you fine folks out there. 
We had a good "Labor Day" week-end, here at ORV area, near Pioche. 

I know I posted this photo last year, but it is one of my favourites, I have many fine photos of birds with the help of DesertDale.  These photos was taken at Wilson Canyon Rest Area.
It is the most common owl in North and South America.  It has adapted to a wide variety of habitats and climates.
They are known for their feather tufts on their heads.
Like other owls, they have an incredible digestive system.  They at times can swallow their prey whole.  Then later regurgitate pellets, made of bones, fur and other parts of their meal.
They are night time hunters.
These are the Coots, we had the pleasure of seeing , at Fish Lake Hot Springs.
Mama had them hiding in the tullies.  DesertDale sat along the bank, for sometime, to get these photos.

It is so peace full, out here in the ORV area, today.  DesertDale is off on his KTM once again.

Enjoy this boondocking life.  Kitfoxgal
