Another one!

Well after voyaging up to Williams Lake to secure the gorgeous Northern Hawk-Owl, it was a little ironic to find out about one along Naramata Road- my old stomping grounds! Dad and I tried for the bird last night when it was first reported but didn't have any luck in the fading light. So... I was pretty happy to hear from Laure in the morning, and sure enough when I pulled up it was waiting for me!!! My third hawk-owl of the year (keep in mind I got my lifer last summer) and my long-awaited Okanagan-first! Glad to see everyone else (who tried) got it today too!


  1. Good stuff Russell, I always like reading reports about people who attempt this sort of stuff

  2. That is an awesome 'Big Year Bird'.
