Great job Paul!

That second shot is excellent. So where in the park was this? Were you down towards the water or
more inland towards where the parking is on the North end?

Thanks for posting Paul.

Thanks Paul, I pm'd the location details. The first shot I just thought was an interesting capture as he leaped of the branch.

Great, it was the best of the bunch, lighting was an issue and he wasn't in the light for long, he (or she ! I don't know if there's an easy way to tell the genders in owls) was moving every few minutes into the thicker forest and the dark.

Nice find Paul. I located one on Saturday on Amherst Island. My name is also Paul and live in Kingston, small world. Didn't realize we had them in our immediate area expect for Amherst Island.

I'd heard Amherst had a nice crop of owls, this one was at Lamoine point, near the front street parking lot, follow the airport fence line trail he hangs in that area and it can be a bit wet in spots - wear your wellies!

And your Paul #2 I've met, bumped into The_Caper Paul Sunday and found the owl not long after - good things come in threes :D

I like the second shot although I think that I would crop it more.

I agree with Snowyowl, like #2 but a tighter crop would have eliminated the blurred truck on the left. Nice shot all in all, wish those guys or any Owl would show around here!
