Barn Owl, New Brunswick, Canada, Saint-Marcel (near Cocagne), Kent County, December 8, 2014


This Barn Owl (photo by Carmella Melanson) is the first record of a live bird in New Brunswick that could be chased by birders and has been co-operative on several evenings since it was first reported by a local resident, Suzanne L├ęger, about a week ago. Other local residents report seeing the bird several days earlier. Most of the previous half-dozen or so records for the province were of dead or injured birds, several of which were at this time of year.
