Three Owl Morning, and Everyone Needs a Hobby
Finding owls in Alaska is like finding owls anywhere else. You look. You look more. You look high. You look low. You listen. You scan. You search the 10 million trees - and one will have the two nestling Great-horned Owls, another will have the hawk-owl-looking tuft on top that indeed is a Northern Hawk-owl. Beyond, near the moose (give us this day our daily moose), will hunt the Short-eared Owl. That was our morning yesterday.
Or part of it. The taiga warblers sang, and multiple Bohemian Waxwings perched and flew, perched and flew, eventually perching for scope views for the lot of us.
