9 June 2012

I was awakened in the middle of the night by the hooting of a Great Horned Owl. Although it was great to hear and I had not heard one in a few years , I needed the sleep badly for the next day. I was on a record-setting pace to record MacGillivray’s this day but it all came to a sudden halt around 9 am when it began snowing. There was a storm from the Pacific NW that brought rain to the Twin Falls area but snow to the upper elevations where I was working.
