The owls on January 19th were very cooperative. We were able to get some amazing looks at 3 and a fair look at one that was pretty well hidden - 4 in all. Yes, that is four Saw-whets in a single morning! The young birders were amazed at the chance to see these marvelous creatures and were even more excited that they could get virtually eye to eye without the owls making a single flinch. The adults were equally amazed and most had not yet seen a Saw-whet owl, so this trip offered not only some terrific views but also an addition to many life lists.
A BIG THANKS to the Arvin family for hosting another amazing trip for the Indiana Young Birders Club!
