California – A Birding Paradise


California is a fantastic place for birding as the state boasts 662 species in the latest CA Bird List, while San Diego County alone has 517 species on its checklist.  The little guy in this pic is a burrowing owl which we encountered on a dirt road just south of the Salton Sea.  Burrowing owls generally live underground in the abandoned burrows of mammals.
