Boreal Owl

Sunday, March 9th, 2013

A Boreal Owl spent the afternoon in the grape arbor behind 480 4th Avenue West, Owen Sound. Several OSFN members had the opportunity to observe the bird. At about four-thirty in the afternoon, it caught a female House Finch, successfully picking it off the feeder. It then returned to the arbor where it proceeded to pluck and devour its meal. The bird remained till dark. There was no further sighting
