I learn so much from John Tschopp’s birding emails and photos – and am thrilled to share his holiday greetings, and this announcement of a sighting of the rare seasonal gingerbread owl.
Besides the regular winter birds, like Towhee, Steller’s Jay, Junco, BC Chickadee, I found these rare Spotted Owls in our yard. They appear to be this year’s hatch. What a surprise! I hope this finds you in good health and I wish next year will be better for everybody. Happy Holidays and good birding! ~John Tschopp
