Just before dark I watches a pair of Barred Owls hunting in my front and side yard. I had lost sight of them until 5:55 PM when I saw this one land on a T-Post on a garden fence:

Saw this many times yesterday in the backyard and got a few long distance photos,¬†that I cropped. I doesn’t take long to remember how beautiful RHW’s are:

I visited Richland Wilderness on Friday afternoon. I got out and walked a bit on the south end of the Creek. The Witch Hazel is in bloom and very fragrant now. My favorite place after 50 years. It is still wild. with no trails; except a rough trail blazed to Richland Creek from the small camping spot above the bridge on the South side of the creek, below the confluence with the Devil’s Fork. There has been a lot of road construction¬†on the north entrance; I don’t like what they have done; it will take 20 years to regenerate what they destroyed. Saw a bunch of Northern Cardinals at the re-routed entrance also.

The southern entrance remains the same expect a few more houses each year. The south entrance road is badly washboarded for 7 miles. The northern entrance has been re-routed, best I can tell (up near Iceledo Gap). There has been very heavy logging near the north entrance also. All in all, it was a beautiful day with highs about 44F. Left through the south entrance road paralleling Falling Water Creek:

Im always looking for photographs of White Winged Crows but, I guess I need to concentrate on stalking Elk to get them. The crow was between me and the Elk and I didn’t know I had one until I uploaded the photos:
