This bird is similar in size and shape to our red bellied woodpecker up north.
Same type of call.

He was very vigilent in keeping track of where the eagle was.
I wonder what owl tastes like to an eagle.

This is only a portion of the crowd that came to see the great grey owl that has been vacationing from northern Ontario.
There were another 70-80 people on the other side of the road.
The police came several times to get people off the road as thye were blocking traffic. This road is an 80k (50 mph) speed limit.
It is nice that a lot of people were interested enough to come out to view the bird but to many were crowding the bird.

A pair of bufflehead were moving rapidly away from the dock after they spotted me.
Understandable as it is still hunt season.
If you look at it in large you will see the water running up the male( on the right) almost to his bill.

Winter showed up yesterday, in a mild form, light snow and below freezing temperatures.
These left over berries stood out against the dusting of snow.
