Terrible sky today (and fog) but I was pretty excited to find these.

Bucky Badger - Thank you! Buzzsaw - are you sitting down? I have something VERY funny to tell you!!! I photographed the Great Horned Owl in LAKEVILLE!!!! Here's where you can go to get photos of two Great Horned Owls that are defending a nest right now in Lakeville: from Hastings I took Hwy 46 West to Cedar Avenue. I turned left onto Cedar (heading South). Then, I turned left onto Dodd and the owl's nest is in the trees on the left side of the road. Just look for the crows as they will let you know where the two owls are!!! Your best shots will be in-flight shots as there are way too many branches near the nest which hide the birds. Sometimes the two birds were near the nest and sometimes they were further back in a clump of trees. You won't have a hard time find them as they are huge. As for the Gyrfacon - he was in Hastings on Hwy 47, 1/4 mile south of Hwy 46. He is usually at mile marker 216 on Hwy 55 in Hastings so I was shocked to see him closer to my home! Buzzsaw, are you a member of MOU? If not, you should be as you get email posts every day telling you where exciting birds can be found. Let me know if you need more info. I couldn't get alot of the photos I get without MOU members help.

Thanks a ton Linda! That GHO must only be 10 minutes from my house. I'm not a member of MN orn union but I do visit MN bird daily and get the reports there. Is that where you got the info to find these birds? I wish we would have met you last weekend, oh well it will happen another time as that hwy 61 route is a gateway to great pictures. :-)
