    We'll be back soon, there will be more of us, and next time we won't be dropping leaflets.

    In Mexico, it's known as el Pescador. No better name possible.

    I love owls, they are one of my favorite animals. I am hearing my Bard Owls daily but have not seen them yet this spring. I am keeping my 300 mm on the camera though...2x extender close at hand!
    Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right......

    Barred owls or barn owls? I had a baby barn owl years ago. Also had Great Horned owls. Beautiful birds.

    Oh, I thought for moment you were referring to Shakespeare's Owl.

    Never seen a Barred owl in the wild. I don't think they were native to California. Especially back in the 70's when I was a falconer. Post some pics if you get the opportunity to get some.

    Beautiful Owl. I love owls.
    Mapie is a conventional looking former Hollywood bon viveur, now leading a quiet life in a house made of wood by an isolated beach. He has cultivated a taste for culture, and is a celebrated raconteur amongst his local associates, who are artists, actors, and other leftfield/eccentric types. I imagine he has a telescope, and an unusual sculpture outside his front door. He is also a beach comber. The Rydster.

    I always loved this clip. It is as nature intended it, but I just find it amazing.

    It's really intense when your hand is in the glove that the bird is landing on. Especially when the bird is soaring hundreds of feet above you and comes in on a full on dive and puts out it's wings at the last second to land.
