Yesterday, the weather forecast was for reasonable weather. The forecast for the rest of the week is rain. So I decided to head out to Brunswick Point in Delta, to try to find and photograph a rough-legged hawk, which has been reported in the area. I was successful, in finding and photographing the hawk, but saw so much more than I expected to see! There were many harriers, red-tailed hawks, eagles, herons, swans, flickers, trumpeter swans and short-eared owls. The biggest surprise was that the owls were active from noon until I left at 3:00 PM. This owl is generally nocturnal, and usually the only time you can photograph them is late in the day or early in the morning, or when they are very hungry, such as after a cold spell and snow storm. Our weather has not been cold and we have not had snow recently.
