Personally, I like the restaurant for it's dark booths and green chile hamburgers. Bosque can get warm and rather sunny during the summer making the "Owl" a good spot to cool off and let the eyes adjust to the darkness......and weird looking biker people. It's a hoot:)

We also discuss keeping an appropriate distance from the owls while taking photos. He did a great job and had a fun day out. So I am very grateful that he followed up on this very special bird.
Finally, I miss my cats so much while we're out on our longer treks. So it's always wonderful to see our feline friends waiting for us when we get home. Nova, below, is a rescued feral cat that we captured at our home. Today, she is a pampered and neurotic kitty who constantly requires our attention:) In fact, all of our cats are rescued. Not only do we save bird lives by keeping our cats indoors; we help these cats live longer and healthier lives. Feral cats make great house cats, BUT you have to capture them when they are kittens.
