First Trip Out!

Last week was a beautiful week to kick off the field season!

I was out and about in southeast Saskatchewan searching abandoned yards and visible nests for Great Horned owl pellets.

I found several samples between Melville and Kipling, all in buildings ranging in size from small grain bins to large barns!

My first collection this year!

Hit the jackpot in an open quonset! Pellets everywhere!

I also found one Great Horned owl roosting in a barn.

Plus I watched the northern lights while on my way home 🙂

Overall, a successful field trip!
