Happily, Wayne and Sue transported a baby barn owl to Lubbock, to a facility where rehabbers can raise large predator birds. I hope he will return to our neck of the woods. Wild Bird Rescue volunteers work hard to raise funding needed to build a facility that will enable them to maintain large birds, like the owls, in this area, where they were born. For now, they have to transport them four hours away to Lubbock, where eventually the birds, all grown up, will fly freely, and, one hopes, toward the area of their birth.
In the meantime, I've seen a large number of Northern Harriers in Archer County. (Yay.)
I've also seen Sandhill Cranes flying about, but haven't pinned down where they are landing. Here I show a group flying over ranch land in Archer County.
