So the wheels have fallen off this blog, but I had to update with the annual Owl Hunt post (even if it's two months late). This year it was only Mark and Ben and me and we decided to mix it up and try the owl hunt in Toronto. There had been regular reports of a Short-eared at Col. Sam Smith Park and a pair of Great Horneds in High Park so I felt pretty good about it. Suffice it to say we struck out on both counts, but while scanning the trees for Brown Creepers in High Park, my eyes fell onto this little guy. We got one owl on the day -- this little Grey Morph Eastern Screech-Owl. Our worst count yet, but at least we didn't get shut out.
