Saw Whet Owl on the BOS Owl Prowl trip.

Here are some photos from this weekends B.O.S Owl Prowl trip with our leader Chuck Rosenberg. This year the owl prowl was in Niagara County starting & ending at the Summit Park Mall. The group saw a Great Horned, 2 Barred, Short Eared, 2 Eastern Screech & a Saw Whet Owl. Other birds of prey that was sighted during the trip was a Bald Eagle, Turkey Vultures, American Kestrels, Red Tailed & Rough Legged Hawks, The trip was great, stopping at several locations & walking to owl sighting areas using spotting scopes and binoculars to view the owls while several people enjoyed taking photos.
Great Horned Owl on it's nest. Not a great photo but it shows
how the owl blends into it's enviroment so well.
Here are 2 Ring Billed Gulls watching the group of Owl seekers
trudging through the snow.

Saw Whet Owl at the Iroquois National Wildlife Refuge.
Almost invisable to most walking through the area,
roosting low in a pine tree covered by dense needle covered branches.
