What kind of Owl?
Posted 08 August 2012 - 11:06 PM
We saw this owl outside of Great Basin National Park on the NV/UT border. At first we thought it was a great horned owl, but he didn't seem to have "horns" and if you look closely you can see his wings have black tips (which doesn't seem to be the case for great horned owls). We spotted this guy the second week of July, 2012 at about 11 at night. He was running/waddling down the remote dirt road we were camping off of. It seemed like this stretch was his hunting spot (very, very few cars, dirt road surrounded by high-desert) and he had no interest in us what so ever. From ground to head he was at least a foot tall, maybe two. Thanks for the help!
