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.
… an adult female …
and an Arctic redpoll (pictured here with the female pine grosbeak).
The Arctic redpoll stayed for a long time in the tree.
These birds were beautiful. So were the wooden owls. However, we also wanted to see living owls. So, we left. Stay tuned!
