Gyr Falcon

This is the 3rd year that this beautiful predator has returned to the feed-lot on highway 97 in Kelowna. Many birders have come here to see this bird, one lady drove all the way from California and staked out the area for three days until she finally got it.

Great Gray Owl

A Great Gray Owl was reported at Mission Creek on the local bird RBA, so Chris Charlesworth, Don Wilson and I went looking. It didn't take long  to locate the owl, though I practically walked into it before noticing it!
