What a day indeed! To a lot of birders, specially me, your day is the ideal day. Spending your time with these beautiful owls is just worth it. Congrats!

What a wonderful day you had! I really enjoyed reading your account of the day. Good decisions lead to good images, and you did right by deciding to spend most of the day with these awesome birds.

A Boreal Owl is high on my list of what birds I would like to photograph most. You are fortunate to live in an area with such great opportunities!


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

It was indeed a great day. Normally birding up here in winter is not this productive, but an irruption year can change everything. Thanks for commenting.
