Birding by boat-Great Horned Owl

This Great Horned Owl appeared comfortable with our approach by boat and, in my experience, let us approach closer than many of this species would usually allow if we were afoot. This owl was perched on the low cliffs that ring part of the shore and would not have been viewable except by boat.

We also saw a Bald Eagle when we came in to eat our lunch as well as an Osprey and a Redtail Hawk. There were several Northern Harriers working the area and sometimes they spooked some small shorebirds or waterfowl. SeEtta
