LANG GGO2 By the way, Peter Thiemann and I are slaving away on our Great Gray Owl, it should go off to the printers this winter.  It’s on the GGOs of OR-CA-WA that have never gotten book treatment before this.  Owl chasers will find our original, detailed breeding range maps to be very interesting.wso on cove roadThis Screech-Owl is in a tree just outside a home on Cove Road east of Ashland.  Last year the homeowners had nesting Pygmy-Owls in this same oak.  The little guys may have to go somewhere else this spring.
