Øygarden 09 February 2010 - Eagle Owls

Waiting for the main event....

Stuck inside for most of the day. A large flock of gulls feeding on what was probably herring out over the fjord was the only thing other than the usual Tree Sparrows pilfink etc in the garden.

A drive by at Herdlevær produced two of the Little Grebes dvergdykker that are overwintering there.

In the evening I checked out a second Eagle Owl hubro locality where at least one bird "sang" strongly for several minutes - a fantastic experience. This is the second of two of the regular territories confirmed as active thus far this season......
