Highlights: Great Gray Owl & Dickcissel (above)

Along with banding a few Saw-whets last night, Keith and Wendy saw a Barred Owl and the first Great Gray Owl of the season. However, we we had no luck finding any roosting owls today. The Dickcissel was found at the feeders in the afternoon, and was still present this evening. It was another beautiful day, and there was another big flight of Pine Siskins and Purple Finches. Both Red and White-winged Crossbills were also present. Tim had a Tundra Swan on the waterbird count today.
