Wet & Thirsty Raptors
A number of raptors drink, bathe, and hunt in the same pools where the bears do their thing.
Not everyday, like Steller and scrub jays, but now and then.
I have a hunch that the birds seen here use several different pools on different creeks.
Screech owls were by far the most frequent users.
This video covers about 5 months of clips from several pools.
