Long waited sighting


Long-eared Owls are quite common in Greece, however they are always very secretive and extremely hard to see. In Egnatia Hotel, Alexandroupolis, a pair has been nesting in the adjacent park for many years, but I had never seen any bird. I finally made it this year, as two juveniles were begging all night long in a pine tree very close to the hotel's entrance. Waiting for the sunrise, I managed to locate one that was preparing to go to sleep, and I took some nice photos (at last!)
