January 21, 2013 Boreal Owl in Kanata,Ontario

A Boreal Owl was found today in Kanata sitting on a snowbank along Campeau Drive near Terry Drive. The owl appeared ok and when approach closely, it flew up into a nearby tree and sat. This nocturnal owl may have been hunting during the daytime which isn't always a good sign. I've picked up a few Boreal Owls that have starved to death. The owl disappeared at dusk so hopefully it wasn't in to bad a shape. There have been at least 4-5 Boreal Owls this winter in eastern Ontario and likely more to come. Check any of the local park woodlots and if you have a feeder look around your backyard. You never know where one might show up.
