There are now almost daily sightings of Great Gray Owls in the Cascades east of Ashland.  Local owl aficionados regularly check the meadows and treetops and often one or more owls are seen…in daytime.  Mel Clements has taken many fine GGO pics and has sent theses two, of a pair of youngster born earlier this year.GGO YNG GGO YNG2A handful of Jackson County birders yesterday saw a total of four Great Gray Owls along one road at about 4600′ elevation.  The two young were heard calling but no adult was spotted nearby.  The two young were hunting together when these photos were taken.  Thanks, Mel.
