Northern Pygmy Owl Buena Vista Trail


Mark Bright
 

Along the Buena Vista Trail in the Montecito foothills a Northern Pygmy Owl flushed from the thick vegetation on the ground along the side of the trail. It flew and landed about 20 feet away to perch in a scraggly dead tree where we watched it for about ten minutes before we left. This was just about 12:15 pm. Good looks and photos obtained. Other than that the trail to the Catway - San Ysidro Cyn - Old Pueblo Trails were pretty quiet for even the usual canyon birds.
