Los Lunas, NM

Chihuahuan Raven

No birds for yesterday, as we were driving through hail and rain in Utah and later on snow in the mountains. Well I call it mountains, Simon says they are canyons. We went to Los Lunas, New Mexico to try and pick up a Burrowing Owl, and did just that! Before we even seen the owls we caught sight of a pair of Chihuahuan Ravens. New life bird for us! One of the ravens was gathering sticks probably preparing for a few new arrivals!

The Burrowing Owls were standing near their holes and didn't seem to happy about our desire to get a good picture. So we snapped a few shots and let them be. We are now up to 234 for our Big Year! 

Tomorrow we have planned a birding trip to Mesilla Vally Bosque State Park. Hoping to increase our bird number! Wish us luck! 

Happy Birding!!!
