Birding At Dawn

Not much weather for western third of country these days. High yesterday at TUS was 97F - low this morning at the house was 56F - so big diurnal ranges, with the low humidity and clear skies. When I walked at dawn this morning I saw a big Horned Owl down in the park next to the Rillito. Couldn't help but wonder if the pair who nested there last spring have returned - one of the pair and one of two nestlings above. There were also a number of Cooper hawks out hunting through the tree-tops this morning - below (not a local photo).

Long-range forecast models keep the Eastern Pacific active, so maybe there's a tropical storm in our future that will do more than Kristy did.
