    I particularly enjoyed learning: - the many different species - I knew there were quite a few, but didn't realize there are 234 - silent flight and the anatomy of their eyes and ears - the irruptive nature of some species and why - was also fascinated to note the max. life spans of the owls that are in my area Thank you for a great course.

    I have been fortunate over the years to see & photograph 10 species of owls in Canada & the US -- Great Horned, Barred, Boreal, Snowy, Great Gray, Short-eared, Northern Saw-Whet, Northern Hawk, Long-eared and Burrowing plus 3 in Africa - Verreaux's Eagle-Owl, a Pearl-spotted Owlet and an African Wood Owl.  My favourite in North American is the Great Gray Owl, which to me has almost a regal bearing with a very intense stare when it focuses on you - I love the facial disk and the eyes.  I also like the Snowy which is always a treat to see standing in a snow covered field or on the move searching for dinner.  In Florida, I had my first experience seeing Burrowing owls, which actually popped out of their burrows within a sand bunker on a golf course!  Fortunately everyone seemed to know they were there and gave that bunker a wide berth.  I really enjoy seeing and photographing owls and love when we have any kind of irruption year ... even a mini-one! Thanks for offering this great course.30 2527 Snowy on Amherst Island024 GGO in Kanata082 GGO in flight in Kanata158 Snowy #6 in flight096 GGO in Kanata1571 Burrowing Owls
