Hey Tweets - As my last stop this afternoon on a 6-day/20 county End of Year swing through the state, I had planned to conclude on a high note with the Everett BUOW. I arrived at 2:45 p.m. to find a handful of birders standing around looking at the drain cover. Alas, about 90 minutes earlier, a guy described as an underwater photographer (i.e. he wasn't wearing binoculars and wasn't a birder!) with a "big lens" apparently got too close to the owl and it flew away and out of sight. Hopefully, it will return tonight to its previous location - but perhaps all of the attention the past couple of days was just too much for it. I hope not!
