|A nice day and Julie was feeding the chickadees.|
|Poor Julie. Scared of a chickadee lol|
|I like this box|
|Xmas is early - I wonder what is in the box.|
|MMMMMMMMMM maybe she won't see me|
|Away I go into the wild.|
|This photo has been lighten so you can see the beautiful Barred owl |
Check the moon behind
|Enjoy your freedom. Be safe.|
Thank you to Donna H who took these photos. This was our second release of the day.
The Toronto Wildlife Centre rescued this juvenile owl.
The Owl Foundation did the rehab . Thank you both organizations for your
|Donna and I took a trip to The Owl Foundation to pick up two |
juvenile owls to be released.
The Toronto Wildlife Centre rescued the owls and then send them to the
Owl Foundation for rehab.
|Donna did the first release and this young owl was ready to come out of the box.|
The most amazing part of the release was there were 8 deer in the woods around us.
Taking photos at dusk is always so I hope you enjoy these shots.
|Ok who is happier the owl or Donna|
|Can you see the owl in the tree? Sun going down.|
|Both these shots have been lightened to show some details of the Barred Owl.|
|On the way to The Owl Foundation we stopped at Burlington to enjoy the|
landscapes. Donna was watching a Hooded Merganzer in the water.
Thank you Toronto Wildlife Centre and The Owl Foundation
for all your great work.
|The Owl Foundation had a very old Great Horned Owl to release the same |
day as Donna and I were doing Barred Owl releases.
We were able to see this old girl before we left.
|she was in on a talon injury|
|But healthy again to be released|
|Molt and Feathers|
|We sure loved looking at her|
|The Owl Foundation has the owls in huge flight cages to make sure|
they are healthy enough to go back in the wild.
But they must catch them before they can go free.
|Annick is very good at this.|
|The Owl Foundation was so pleased to be able to release this owl.|
You don't see many old ones.
|Thank you to The owl Foundation for all your work.|
|Male Pine Grosbeaks|
|Look at the colours|
|Female Pine Grosbeak|
|Amazing to watch|
We saw the Pine Grosbeaks because Andrea saw a Raven. As she got out of the car, Janice saw the touch of red in the berry bushes.
