New from SE Michigan

Hi, my name's Rena. I recently became very interested in birds, but specifically owls.

I went to the Whitefish Point Bird Observatory in April and saw long-eared owls flying for the first time in my life. I also saw banding of boreal and saw whets. Then last week I went to Blandford Nature Center in Grand Rapids and saw the barred, great horned, barn, long-eared, and short-eared owls that are there for rehabilitation.

Between those two excursions, I've been regularly going to Heritage Park in Farmington Hills and St. Clair Shores and Kensington Metroparks to see if I can spot any owls. Besides one possible sighting of a great horned owl flying in St. Clair Shores Metropark, I haven't had any luck.

But considering my obsession with owls started only a few months ago, I'm pretty happy with my involvement in the owl-world so far. :lol:

Anyway, just thought I'd say hi and I'm definitely excited to learn more and witness the wonderful creatures that are owls. :)
