Two others soon joined it.
They were working an area with scattered pines and aspen
I was finally able to sneak up behind several pines to get about 30 feet away from this one and get this shot through the trees.
It finally flew off with the other two.
As I was coming out of the mountains, I found a pair of them hunting the CRP ground about four miles from the other owls. The light was bad but I was able to get this shot after it harvested a rodent.
Its mate continued to fly over me as it hunted the same area.
By the way, I spent today looking for the five and I found all five of them again.
What a great way to end another wild day in Idaho.
