Great Summer!

It has been an amazing summer of bird atlassing in numerous remote areas of Manitoba. I will slowly get around to processing the photographic record but, in the meantime, here is my first teaser and one of the many outstanding highlights… do you know who this is?


  1. I dont know which species of owl it is, but it sure is a fantastic image!! :)

  2. Hi Angad and all,

    This is a juvenile Boreal Owl, also know as Tengmalm's Owl (Aegolius funereus). The juvenal plumage is very different from the adult plumage.

  3. Hi Christian

    I'm in the process of creating an online "Field Guide to the Birds of Vancouver Island' and hoping that you might be generous enough to donate some of your excellent photos to the project. I'm particularly interested in the juvy Boreal Owl above. The range maps and text are stored at http://picasaweb.google.com/warbler2020 under RANGES. Those who have donated so far are listed with links to the stored photos on Flickr under the Mockingbird image. My email is warbler2020@gmail.com If you are interested please leave your photo (Flickr) website address and a note of permission.
    My real name is Keith Taylor and the explanation for Greg Smythe’s name on the website is explained under the picture of Homer Simpson.
    Thank you
