Totally captivated in 2007 by the live camera feed of the Hornby Island nesting Bald Eagles in B.C., I was drawn into birding and have never looked back. Thus begins my account of what I'm fortunate enough to discover each day and perhaps capture with my camera.

For the Love of All Owls!!!

I was extremely touched today when I heard from some fellow owl-lovers that my blog post detailing last Sunday's visit with Chris to The Owl Foundation in Vineland inspired them to sponsor one of Kay's resident owls!  

In honour of this wonderful gesture, I share some of my past owl photos. These are just some of the owl species that have been helped by The Owl Foundation over the years:

Snowy Owl:

Eastern Screech-Owl:

Great Horned Owl:

Northern Hawk Owl:

Barred Owl:

Barn Owls:

Northern Saw-whet Owl:

Boreal Owl:

...and of course Big Bird, a female Great Gray Owl, with Kay:

Nancy and Pat's generosity to The Owl Foundation is an inspiration to us all, so on behalf of the owls, my sincere gratitude goes out to you both!

Fantastic! Nancy and Pat are terrific people and I'm sure they're really happy to have sponsored an owl of their own!

Nancy and Pat, I don't think I've met you yet but a huge thank you for sponsorship an owl at The Owl Foundation! It is a really incredible place that is responsible for putting so many beautiful owls back in the wild where they belong!
