  1. Nice list. That owl sure does look paler than any I've seen in the area. I'll be interested in what other birders think.

  2. Well, had one birder from south-most Hill Country chime in on his thoughts of antarcticus. Had one well-versed birder in se TX tell me his thoughts that they would tend not to be antarcticus.

    An ornithologist of a high-order and emeritus of university tell his initial thoughts of pallescens.

    Just when you think you've looked into everything, and pair of gray and white GHOW's sit on an old tree at Post Park.

    Hope your doing well in s.county and not getting too much of that Cienega smoke.

    Looking forward to Lucifer's and beyond at the CMO.
