PEL'S FISHING OWL
The Pel's Fishing Owls has always "been seen in camp all week" until I arrived or "been spotted in this tree on every drive until you arrived". So it was with not much hope that I scanned the green foliage for the tell tale brown feathers - and this time got lucky - a beautiful Pel's Fishing Owl at last! It's not a great picture but proof of my sighting!
