Great Grey Owl

Thanks to a fellow birder's tip (Murray Shields), I eventually located the Great Grey Owl (GGO) nearby. Another lifer for your's truly.

Hey Daniel, So happy to see that you got the Great Gray...no thanks to me. What a gorgeous bird. It was a Lifer for me as well. I was there very early on Sunday morning with a friend but we didn't stay in the area long after seeing the bird. Totally forgot your contact info in the mad rush to get out there...my apologies. Happy birding in 2014! Walter

Jealous a little and a lot. They have such great tones and colors that look like winter textures. No wonder they are hard to see!
