I went out to Point Reyes a couple of days ago. The elk rut has started, especially with the Limantour herd. The Tomales herd seems to lag behind the Limantour herd in antler shedding, antler re-growth, mating and calving.
On my way to check on a part of the Limantour herd I saw this adult great horned owl. I was pleased to find it roosting where it was. They’re hard enough to find and most of the ones I find are in trees with distracting backgrounds.
