Jim Lind strikes again! Or was it Sharon ...or Charlie?
They found a Boreal Owl today along Scenic Hwy 61 about 0.4 mi E (north) of Homestead Rd near Fire# 5740/5744. This is just W (south) of Stoney Point between Duluth and Two Harbors.
The bird was on the N side of the road. Many were able to see this owl...A lifer for Julio from CA and several birders from OH.
The Boreal dozed, then hunted actively...and even plunged in the snow but sadly no vole.
As Mike Hendrickson noted, there was some whitewash on the branch so maybe this is a regular perch??
