More Gray Owls

gray in birchFriends, this Great Gray Owl was one of the many who migrated south in the winter of 2005-2006, they came south looking for food and such a migration is called an irruption.  They say the owls are irrupting again this winter and we did see two on the way to Two Harbors Minnesota on Saturday.  It was a sunny day so the yellow eyes did not show on our recent images, this owl and the one in the image below were taken on overcast days, so the yellow eyes were visible and the owls were very photogenic. til Tomorrow MJ
