[Tweeters] Extremely strange - out of area sighting

Hi Tweeters,

I participated in the Sooke, British Columbia CBC today. Among quite a few
unusual for the area birds, one bird stuck out like a sore thumb. On Race
Rocks, a small inaccessible, vegetation free rocky island 1 mile south of
the southernmost point of Vancouver Island and 10 miles nnw of Port
Angeles, someone found and photographed a BOREAL OWL on top of a black
pipe. Given that I don't think there are any rodents on the island and
there's largely nothing else to support it there, I would imagine that its
stay will be quite brief. If one assumes that it's going south, its next
destination will be the northern Olympic peninsula. Keep a look out even
though you'd be extremely fortunate to find it once it finishes its
unusually long crossing.

Keep your eyes and ears skyward.

Jim
