Boreal Owl (Aegolius funereus) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1278)
Canada (Qu├ębec) We made three attempts in recent weeks to locate this bird and on the third try we were successful. It was worth the effort and we got to see it with its eyes open. Owls look much better when they are awake.

Absolutely incredible. Have only seen one ever and he was hidden in a tangle. Great perseverance.

Thanks. Altough the third one I've seen over many years, it was the first time I've seen this bird with its eyes open The previous time it was in a dense cedar with little light. This particular location has no evergreens but it does have dense early growth trees that provide good protection for it when it roosts.
