great gray owl (and more snowies) in southwestern ontario

25 Dec

I don’t ever remember hearing about a GREAT GRAY OWL being seen in southwestern Ontario before.  There might be records, but wow…………this is a neat report.  I’m hoping that maybe on Thursday I can go see it.  Hope it sticks around until then.

Click on this link to my friend, Blake Mann’s,blog, to read about it and see some pictures he took.

SNOWY OWL sightings keep mounting up in southern Ontario.  One was hanging around Seed Road, northwest of Strathroy, over Christmas weekend.  A second SNOWY was seen in the same general vicinity.  Always nice to have them back.

    This is a rare occurence. As I mentioned on the blog, never before has a Great Gray ventured this far south in Ontario. The most southerly was one at Camp Ipperwash that Alf Rider found about ten years ago or so. Usually we have to go to Eastern Ontario or the near north.
    Many have come from far and wide to see this novelty.

    Maybe if flew over my house!??!
