Flammulated Owl (taken without a flash)
Once I got my mom on the bird we then walked a little closer to the bird and had even better views!
Watching the Flammulated Owl and getting to observe it while it actively hunted for nearly an hour was probably my best "Booya Moment" bird-wise! While we watched this guy for a while his mate even came in to see what was going on, but she didn't stay around very long. By the time my mom said that it was getting late I had a whole bunch of photos of this guy!
After that night of owling I didn't have any extreme birding moments like that but I did see that Flam two more times and even heard my second owl lifer at Happy Jack, a Long-eared Owl! I hope you enjoyed my Flammulated Owl post and I look forward to seeing this species again in the future! Cheers to the Flams!!!
