Oil on canvas 9x12
In 2005 the word travelled fast. There was a Boreal Owl in Central Park! I went out to find it knowing that these birds stay back in the shadows of fir trees, and it might be difficult to locate it. I had seen one in Alaska where they were supposed to be (as well as the rest of the Great Piney Woods that circles the globe up North) . How this bird got this lost I have no idea, but it can't be good. Anyway, there was no need to worry about finding him. All I had to do was look for was a huge crowd of bird watchers, and there he was. Not as exciting as finding one yourself in their home territory.
