Don’t let a great-horned Owl tickle you: birding update with John Tschopp

June 5, our local bird guru, John Tschopp, reports that he took advantage of phase 2 to hit the road and go bird spotting along the Thompson River, the day after the campsites opened. Waiting for his delight, a great-horned Owl that had chosen that deserted campground to raise its family.

“I’d like to draw your attention to the toes of the adult owl,” writes John. “No chance for a chicken or a cat to get away.”
