Usually, I see maybe one or two Western Tanagers a season, but on May 16, 2010, they were everywhere in Corrales. Here's a few pictures of them,
the last also has a Blue Grosbeak in the background.




A pair of Black-crowned Night Herons seem to nest at the Japanese Garden in the Rio Grande Botanic Garden, and they were back again on May 28,2010.
The last two pictures show our guy apparently caught in some fishing line around his foot.

Great Horned Owl - March 16, 2011 - Rio Grande Nature Center
She's been here since early February, so am hoping for a few more when the eggs hatch.
On April 2, 2011, the two baby owlets appeared for me!

(4/7/11)
After being out of town for two weeks, when I checked back on April 24,
the nest was empty, so they must have fledged.
Great Horned Owl - March 19, 2011 - Open Space Visitor Center
Another nesting owl located across the river and a little north on 3/19/11.

(3/19/11)

(3/20/11)

(4/2/11)
And on April 7, 2011, at least two and probably three, little ones appeared at the Open Space nest!


Sure enough, counting beaks on my return April 24,
there's three little ones, the dominant one clearly close to fledging.

Surprise! One more Great Horned Owl nest at Rt.66 Open Space, June 13, 2011.
