Three Owls

A Little Owl that we saw on our walk yesterday in the wadi.
Another Little Owl, seen today. A different sub-species.
After dark, our guides hooted out a long-eared owl in a tree near where we are staying. We saw it fly over us, very close, making sounds by clapping its wings together, and then saw it in a tree. No photos of this one. 

We had another very long birding day with lots of variety of scenery including desert and oases, and including many species of birds. Our first location was very close to the border of Egypt. Israel is such a small country -- you can drive from one border to the other in maybe 3 hours or less.
