|Grand Valley Road|
I set off at 9am for the Grand Valley Road the scene of a wonderful day with a Great Grey Owl back in July. There had been a recent sighting of a Northern Pygmy Owl in the same area and that species would be a lifer for me. The weather was glorious with bright sunshine and a pleasant 3 degrees. Well no sign of any owls but 2 White-tailed Deer and a Mule Deer.

Heading up to the north I came across 4 Rough-legged Buzzards (Hawks) and was fortunate that one allowed me close enough to get some decent shots. The only other thing of note was a Coyote crossing the road on my way back for lunch.
