|Since we arrived in La Quinta we've been enjoying watching a great horned owl who sits in a palm tree by the swimming pool. We have been calling him Hooty the lifeguard. What we didn't know was that the lives he was guarding were Mrs. Hooty and two little hooters who were hiding in the next palm tree over. They must be at a curious age now because suddenly they appeared, peering out of their nest. They are fascinating to watch and photograph. One of the little ones definitely has inherited a good "stink eye" look from Dad!
