OSLO BIRDER: Ural Owl in Oslo?!?


I have actually begun a reasonable couple of post explaining the
day’s occasions as the most effective ever before so I will certainly refrain that however the other day might well go
down as one of, otherwise the, many
unanticipated days birding I have actually had in Oslo.

The day began effectively with a women Grey-headed
Woodpecker at Fornebu (possibly the very same bird I saw there a couple of weeks ago).
which revealed specifically well feeding in trees. I followed it for a very long time.
as well as did not as soon as hear it touching (as I would certainly get out of various other woodpecker.
types) as well as it just called a number of times implying it would certainly be really simple to.
miss it. Just a solitary Bearded Tit exposed itself it me although my birds were.
reported by others.

The day took its turn for the unanticipated though when.
I got an image from Kjetil Johannessen with simply the message “uncovered from.
the kitchen area home window”. I did a dual take as the photo was of a Ural Owl!!!!
If you had actually asked me to forecast the following brand-new types I would certainly see in Oslo I believe.
this would certainly have come a lengthy means down the checklist. With just around 10 sets understood.
in Norway as well as an extremely less active nature it is not a bird you anticipate to learn.
of array. They have a much more diverse diet plan than the vole professionals like GG as well as.
Hawk Owl so are much less most likely to be required out of array by food lacks.
they do really remarkably show up in unanticipated locations. My very first document was.

After just around 10 mins though it began browsing and afterwards flew off.
right into the timber. My thermal imager entered into its very own however as well as I had the ability to.

Searches today (consisting of by me) stopped working to refind it however that certainly does.
not suggest it has actually gone as well as I would not be amazed if it or an additional shows up.

There are couple of documents from various other locations to recommend so.
