I could not resist a second post for today. This has been a great birding day. It started 1/2 hour before dawn down at Canal Park, and continued with today’s plieated woodpecker (see post #1 for today), but as the late night commercial states: But wait … there’s more!
Thus, shortly before 4 pm I drove over to “owl alley” which is only a few miles from my house. The Great Gray Owl was back and hunting. I had a fantastic hour watching him hunt and taking photographs. It was fun to watch him catch a vole and down it in one gulp. Later, he flew directly over my head at a height of only five feet as he moved hunting grounds. Wow!
Here are two photos from this afternoon’s events!
