One Short-eared owl as soon as drove up at 4:15 pm, cst. Then nothing for 15-20
minutes except the fading sunlight. Official sunset at 4:32. Temperature not
bad. The hunters had cleared out leaving a clean campsite. Around 4:40 things
started to pop and one by one, up to groups of 3 and one case of 4- in a few
minutes- we had 8 or 9 Northern Harrier Hawks, yes, that many, m and f. Plus, a
total for the late afternoon of 3 short-eared owls. Some of the hawks and owls
were far away, 1,000 to 2 000 ft, but a couple of each flew right over us and
while the sunlight was great, especially for the hawks.
Then at 4:52 Venus followed by Jupiter popped out one index finger apart at
arm's length, in the wesr. It will be 2021 before the two planets are this
Let me tell you about the sunset bands of red, pink , blue and gray.
