After 13 March 2015 in north-east Finland came 14 March 2015 there. We went to the garden of well-known Finnish bird photographer Hannu Hautala in Kuusamo. Wooden sculptures of owls near the entrance.

In a Swedish service tree, there are berries. They attract birds: a juvenile pine grosbeak, an adult male pine grosbeak …

These birds were beautiful. So were the wooden owls. However, we also wanted to see living owls. So, we left. Stay tuned!

  1. Very beautiful bird photos. Thank You presenting them.

    It was not the first time when I saw wooden owl. Very nice indeed, I have to say. When roaming around in Finland I have mainly seen bears everywhere. Some of them are carved quite skillfully, some not. Sometimes other animals like lions and owls. In My blog I have “hundreds” of carved bears photos.

    Have a nice day!
