Lucky Peak: Finally some owls!
So we're finally catching the target species in our owl nets. After catching 1 Common Poorwill, 2 flying squirrels, and 3 longhorn beetles, the owls are beginning to trickle in. People have given me a lot of sympathy for having to live in a tent in the woods for 2 months, but I'm not really sure why. I get to see the sunrise and sunset everyday, I have my choice of handling hawks or songbirds over morning coffee, and I am constantly surrounded by stunning views and intriguing western flora and fauna.

Hopefully many more owls ahead of us.
