Boreal Owl (Aegolius funereus) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1291)
Canada (Qu├ębec) A follow up trip brought us repeat success with an early morning sighting. The bird does not hunt during daytime unlike its cousin the Northern Hawk Owl which we saw recently. It sleeps most of the time, waking every few hours, preening and sometimes moving to a different perch just to exercise its wings. It does not become active until after dark.

It's a cute little one and in morning light those eyes are riveting. With so few lifetime experiences it is worth the effort to see it more than once.
