Hey Peter Bangayan, your friends have shifted from the west coat to the east coast! These are new to me. They showed up on the Tantramar Marsh, that narrow strip of land that joins New Brunswick to Nova Scotia. They have been showing up around 7-7:30 pm so shooting is limited from then until it gets too dark, which is currently about 8:30 pm. Last night the sky was very clear until a big black cloud blew in front of the sun around 8:15 pm, and that was that. These guys sure didn't want to get too close to anyone, so ISO was quite high :p .

Hey Ian. These look familiar. Good work under tough conditions. I took this 5 minutes after you left. Surprisingly, I took this at ISO 6400, which is a record for me (but needed a lot of noise reduction) using a 7D II. 1/1000 sec, f4.

Very nice Simon, I know the 7D version 1 I had didn't like high ISO but this looks good! I had to use selective NR with the adjustment brush in LR. My first few shots were at 1/1600 sec but I must have brushed the dial for shutter speed and most shots were therefore at 1/800 sec, so I was pleasantly surprised to see a few turn out relatively clearly. It was nice meeting you there!

Nice series! The shorties here should be back this winter. I suspect they're still around somewhere, but much harder to find this time of year; I'll wait for December and get more shots then. ;)

Thanks Rocky, I'll be looking for their return thru you and Peter. This was the first I'd heard of them in any numbers around here, although Cornell says they're the most common owl around.

Thanks Bob. It's fun finding something new, especially an owl.
