  4. I had one of these little guys pay me a visit this past Saturday. He must have followed a mouse through my doggy-door, because when I woke up he was perched on my window sill in my dinning room. I opened my dinning room door to my outside porch and he flew out the door without any problems.

    That was strange enough, but what made it even stranger was that this was the second owl to fly into my home within the same week. The first owl was not a Boreal Owl, it was a Barred Owl. He was easy to identify with those pitch black eyes. While Barred Owls are quite common in southeastern Alaska, they are not suppose to be as far northwest as south central Alaska.

    I have lived in the Matanuska-Susitna Valley for the last eight years and never had a critter (other than mice, shrews, and voles) come pay me a personal visit before. I hope neither owl goes too far away, I want them to dispose of the mice, shrews, and voles before they get into my home.

  5. Wow, that’s amazing Tom. The only wildlife intruders I get are Chipmunks.

  6. Hi there. Great pictures, someday I hope to see a Boreal Owl. I live in Toronto, and this past Sunday, my wife, Jean, and I came upon a Barred Owl in Rouge National Park, near Markham, Ontario. This was the second time in six weeks that we have come upon, and filmed, an owl out in the wilds. The first was a Saw-Whet Owl. Prior to these two sightings, we had never seen an owl in its natural habitat. Needless to say, it has been an exciting six weeks. Our pictures and video of the Barred Owl sighting are posted on our blog at:
