West Texas Bird of the Day: Elf Owl

We set up near an old house with a telephone pole that had a perfect looking hole. As dusk settled, we spotted two Elf Owls on a wire near a different, distant pole, but they proceeded to fly right to us, with one landing first on the wire over our head and then entering the nearby hole, sitting there for prolonged scoped views with its head sticking out. With Lesser Nighthawks flying past and stars overhead, it was a perfect finish for our last night in Big Bend.
