Great Grey Owl off Sasquatch Trail & Welcome to new Neighbours!

Suzie and Stefan Beckmann just moved into their new home at 110 Sasquatch Point three weeks ago and are loving it here.  WELCOME!

Stefan’s account of the Owl sighting:  My wife Suzie and I spotted a rare Great Gray Owl just off Sasquatch Trail today (April 8). It didn’t move off its branch allowing us to return later with our camera. Its head and eyes were always following the movements of our dog as you can see on the last photo.KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

    Beautiful Bird, curious to know if it is one of the 2 we released in 2009 at the entrance of Bull moose. I should check with the Owl rehab at Vaseoux lake to find out if they have tags on them or any other markings!

      Interesting, John! Too bad there are so many feathers we can’t see the legs! That raptor centre is great. Yesterday morning we were visiting friends in town on Gala and a Sharp Shinned Hawk hit glass and ended up face down in a pond. We picked it up and kept it safe for a few hours but it never recovered completely. My friends called the rehab and they actually drove all the way to Osoyoos and picked up the little guy. Apparently, they mate for life, so they are looking after it until it is totally well and then they will drive back and release it in the same area. They figure it probably has a mate. How romantic the reunion will be!

      John, I think that the owls that were released at that time were a pair of Great Horned Owls.

    Fabulous photos Stefan and Suzie…this guy’s just a “tad” bigger than “Rossco” the pygmy owl we rescued on our property! Welcome to paradise. 💚
