Øygarden 23 March 2009

Eagle Owl hubro killed by power lines
Here is what it should have looked like....

Solberg was rather unproductive with just a couple of newly arrived Meadow pipit heipiplerke of interest and an obvious northward movement of Gannets havsule.

A Grey-headed Woodpecker gråspett sang near Kollsnes.

The Pochard taffeland is still at Tjeldstø - species #153 from the house....
A stroll with the children in the evening resulted in a macabre find - an Eagle Owl hubro killed by either collision with power line or electrocution (or both!). The bird had obviously been dead some time. A perfect example of why power lines should be buried - at least in Eagle Owl hubro country.
