Spotted Owl


Peter Schneekloth
 

A very cooperative Spotted Owl was seen along Davey Brown trail on Figueroa
Mountain today. Taking the trail from Figueroa Mt. Road decend to where the
trail takes a hard right turn and crosses the stream with a deep pool to your
right (this is the first water you will see on the way down). The trail then
decends along a fairly deep ravine then takes a hard left at the bottom of the
ravine where the ravine ties into another creek coming from the right. The bird
was seen below trail level looking down into the ravine perhaps two thirds of
the way down the trail between the pool at the top and the left turn at the
bottom.

This gave the impression of being a young bird with lots of downy feathers
protruding on the back and back of head.
