Whenever I go check remote cameras near Agua Prieta, Sonora, I get excited about what I might see during the trip. Normally, to get to the places where the cameras are, I have to take a short 20-minute walk. During this time, I go stealthily because of what can be observed. Sometimes I stop for a moment to look for birds, since the place is frequently visited by species who come to drink water or rest near the place’s natural springs.
Over time the wildlife I’ve come to see are coyotes, wild cats, skunks, mule deer, and a great variety of birds. One of the species that always amazes me when I find it is the great horned owl (Bubo virginianus). On most occasions that I’ve gone to check the cameras, I see owls in the distance, and they look at me with their big eyes.
