Greg Miller Big Year Series: Winter Owls

great-gray-owl-gazing-small-binns-img_1341 Owls are a favorite subject of many birders… and this trip will not disappoint! As many as seven species of owls have been seen during peak eruption years: Great Gray Owl, Great Horned Owl, Snowy Owl, Barred Owl, Northern Hawk Owl, Boreal Owl and Eastern Screech Owl. Even non-peak seasons can offer great opportunities for five of these species.

Many other great birds may be seen as well, like Black-backed Woodpecker, Boreal Chickadee, Gray Jay, Evening Grosbeak and so much more.
