Back in January I visited an area north of Whitby, Ontario with Barb Charlton to take a look at a Great Gray Owl that had decided to take up residence for the winter there. I posted some of my photos here.
On Thursday I had a doctor's appointment in Markham, so afterwards I drove back to the area to hopefully see the bird again. Just like on my previous visit the owl was immediately found, right out in the open on a shrub near the roadside. The sun was hidden behind some clouds and it was late in the day so my photos this time around were not as good as the first time, but I came away with a few that I am happy with.
After a few minutes the owl alighted and flew back towards the far east end of the field.
