Boreal Owl on Darland Mountain-17 October
Ellen and I camped at Clover Flats Campground last night and were lucky to
have a brief but close view of a BOREAL OWL peering at us from a spruce
branch next to the trunk in the campground. The owl gave a few "skieuw!
calls responding to playback of its spring song.
We saw no other birds or wildlife on our very short night in the mountains.
The star show was spectacular. Ellen pointed out numerous constellations and
Jupiter, very bright indeed.
