Yesterday on the shortest birding day of the year I set out towards Boundary Bay in search of a few last minute additions to my year list. I was lucky enough to relocate the Long-eared Owl (lifer!) that Sean and Mike saw last weekend. The owl was roosting low in a thicket making a clear shot impossible so I didn’t think much of this shot as I was taking it, but after getting on the computer I really like how the green twigs frame the owl.
