It is always a good trip when a Burrowing Owl is one of the birds we run into. This trip was actually to Tucson, but flying into LAX and driving so we could see some different birds along the way had us stop in Blythe on the border of California and Arizona. There were at least 12 of the little day loving owls on the dykes that hold in the irrigation canals together. The birds would be roosting along the field edge of the road keeping an eye on what we were doing. Burrowing Owls from our end of the world will winter in California but some of these birds will head into Central and South America for the winter.
