The Owl woods yielded 3 long-eareds this morning but unfortunately no 
saw-whets.  The two juvenile Snowies were out and despite the clear blue 
skies, a short-eared was flushed from the path along the southern edge of 
the KFN trail.  Red-tails (3), Roughies (3), and a male Harrier were 
observed as well as a Merlin plucking feathers from a kill on a roadside 
fence post allowing excellent views.  35 Tundra Swans and around 1000 scaup, 
both lesser and greater, were floating off the north-eastern tip of the 
Gravel bar.
