GREAT GRAY FLIGHT

Click here for a charming compilation of Great Gray Owl hunting videos. It was put together by Lee French in Ashland. Thsi tije of year the male adult is hunting to feed the owlets, his mate and himself. That’s sixteen or more kills he needs to make daily of small mammals. Lots of time on task.

Some if the videos may show fvemales hunting outside of nesting season when they often hunt for themselves.

Who’s the hunting male trying to feed?

Here’s a photo Dick Ashford, of Ashland, got of a fledfgling last spring:

At the other end of the size scale click here for close up of baby Bushtit.
