WEST SEATTLE BIRDS: Four for ‘Superb Owl Sunday’

If you’re a frequent WSB reader, you likely know that during football season, we feature galleries of readers’ bird photos. While we’ve gone back lately to spotlighting birds one at a time in our daily “what’s happening” lists, Jamie Kinney suggested joining in “Superb Owl Sunday.”

Jamie shared some favorite owl photos from the past two-plus years – above, a Snowy Owl; below, a Barred Owl:

Looking into our files of bird photos received in recent months, we found Kersti Muul‘s photo of a Great Horned Owl in Lincoln Park last October:

And one more from Jamie, an owl you won’t see around here – a Little Owl photographed in Scotland:

Thanks again to everyone who shares bird photos – and do check our daily “what’s happening today” lists for more, as we get them! Also, if you missed the announcement Saturday, two West Seattle parks are hosting birding events soon.

    I’m not into sports, so don’t care about Super Bowl Sunday, but Superb Owl Sunday is such a great and clever idea! Thanks, Jamie, Kersti, and WSB! —Mike

    Owls are fantastic.  I used to work with a Northern Saw-whet owl at Discovery Park.  Adorable.  Barn owls are beautiful, and I frequently hear Barred owls in Arbor Heights.  This was most true during the pandemic when so many animal and bird species seemed to emerge as the human din subsided.

    It might have been Eagles vs Chiefs on tv but at Duwamish Head it was Seahawks (ospreys) vs Eagles. They had crows and gulls cheering/heckling them on. It was a pretty good show too.
