Football games, food and a Long-eared Owl

January 5, 2014

Richard Stevens:

Rebecca and I skipped a trip to Aurora Reservoir today.  Overnight snow made roads quite slippery.  Instead, we chose roads less traveled by the many cars rushing/sliding around the city and drove to a friend's home in the country near Prospect Valley (Weld County).

A friendly bribe of food and we watched the playoff games (my favorite bribes-food or a bird field guide, although once a Plant Field Guide worked just fine).

At halftime, Jim and I trudged through several inches of snow and put a scope on one of the pair of Long-eared Owls that have found the windbreak around his ranch a suitable home.

My two football teams both lost and I was glad I am not a betting man.
