"Picture of the Week" 121213  "There were five to six Great Grey Owls in the area --- " (Click #03) Lapland, Finland - Telegraph Pictures of the Day Dec. 7, 2012     That pic is great. In our opinion, owls are very cool birds. We believe that British wildlife photographer Jules Cox became happy when he photographed his first Great Greys. We fortunately saw many Great Greys several years ago, but we've never spotted Barred Owls despite our efforts. In fact, almost always whenever we didn't go birding with our birder friends, they told us, "During Today's walk, we saw a Barred Owl. You should have come with us." Rats! Someday soon we'd love to see elusive (?) Barred Owls. ... Yeah, we're pretty sure Barred Owls always see us. :-)    Finland | Lapland     our Owl page    フクロウ
