Congratulations to Warkari for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 12 votes - View Previous Winners


I made my annual pilgrimage to the Sax-Zim Bog of North Minnesota to photograph the Great Gray Owls that winter there. My previous 2 trips there were fruitless. But third time was a charm for me.
I wanted to get some in-flight shots of the owl. But I was there only in the morning and unfortunately I missed the couple of times that it flew around.

Thanks for looking.

Amit

Excellent. GGO in snow is as good as it gets.

Thanks so much. Don't the GGOs also visit upstate New York?

Very nice. I was there 12/22 and 12/23. When were your shots taken? I may have some of the same bird.

Hi Aaron, I was there on the morning of the 23rd. Me and my 3 other friends got there at sunrise and we drove down Admiral and McDavitt roads quite a few times. Saw 2 GGOs and 3 NHOs. Then we went to Mary Lou's feeders to see if there were any Evening Grosbeaks, but came back empty. We left around 1:30 pm.
Were you alone or with somebody? I wonder if we ran into each other.

Cheers,
Amit

Amit,
I was there all day on the 22nd and the 23rd. I was alone in an older, green Dodge Grand Caravan. I shot out my window on a beanbag most of the time. I think I saw you and your friends.
I saw one GGO on Lake Nichols Road, one on Admiral on the 22nd. Middle of the afternoon on the 23rd I saw one on McDavitt. Only one other photographer came up after I found that bird. I did alert some others after the owl flew into the woods that it may come back out to hunt some more. I got some great shots and needed to head back down to the Twin Cities to pick up my family.
