Yesterday dawned clear, cool, calm and spectacular. The wonderful group of 14 folks met at Hood Park for the 15th Owls by Day WOS Field Trip. We started off the day by driving out into the boon docks and looking at an adult female Snowy Owl that I first located on 7 Dec.2017.This big owl was a "lifer" for five of the birders along.The next owl species was a saw-whet located by MerryLynn and so we were off spotting owl after owl. We then proceeded to follow our route and located the following species.
Great Horned Owl-12
Northern Saw-whet Owl-8
Great Gray Owl-2 (heard only)
For a total of 28 owls of 5 species.
Great trip and amazing weather. Wonderful group of birders/photographers. Come join us next February.
Have a great new week.
Later Mike Denny
