Boreal Owl

Boreal Owl, or Tegmalmn’s Owl to use the name applied in Europe, is a show stopper. So to get the chance to see a breeding site in Churchill northern Manitoba was a wee bit special.

We drove out of town to the allotted stake out and walked just 50m from the road before being confronted by a lichen covered nestbox. The noise of our approach had brought an adult to the entrance, and it soon popped (and pooped!) out onto a nearby stump.

The only problem was it was too close to focus on. A few steps back and I nailed it. Meantime I was surrounded by a swarm of Mosquitos who enjoyed their Celtic buffet while I snapped. Pain and blood were accepted for such an awesome lifer.

Now where are the anti-hystemines?
