Birding this morning near the Rio Grande River, we saw this Great Horned Owl sitting on her nest. Photo is from Len's Flickr set. We spent the day at several birdwatching sites. Unfortunately a very high wind was disturbing the birds and making birdwatching difficult.

This is one of the ponds maintained for waterfowl.

|View from Sandia Mountains. We drove up this afternoon. On the peak, the wind was really brutal.|
