What Is It?

During one my visits the Cleveland Indians' Player Development Complex in Goodyear, Arizona I came across this little guy guarding a section of drain culvert across from the main practice field. It looks like an owl but I'm not certain so if anyone happens to be able to identify her let me know. I am without any of my bird watching field guides so I'm usual. She seems to be protecting this particular area possibly a nest.

Spring Training From Goodyear, Arizona

Today marks the beginning of another baseball season as the boys of summer return to to Florida and Arizona for a month and a half of spring training. The weather here in Goodyear couldn't be better with today's high forecast to be 80! In an hour or so the air will be filled with the sound of leather on leather as balls crack into waiting mits along with the unmistakable sound of wooden bats against Rawlings Major League baseballs. For a baseball fan and former player the atmosphere is absolutely electric, this why we're able to endure the long winter. PLAY BALL !!!!!
