Our visiting hawk owl disappeared for approximately three weeks. I was pleasantly surprised when he reappeared this week. What a treat it has been to watch him. I find myself taking far too many photos of him.
There is not much going on in Auke Bay right now. However, the harbor seals have been around along with a few pacific loons.
I watched a song sparrow eat, bathe, and then proceed to shadow dance. I was surprised at how well he tolerated my presence.
