I am looking at a long, cold winter here in the north, and most of my scribbling will have to be done inside. Last weekend, I spent on the south-west coast, and the birding highlight of the trip was definately a Hawk Owl - one of many in the south of Norway this autumn. It's not like the huge invasion in 1984, when they were absolutely everywhere, but still allowed me only my second meeting with this stunning bird since then.
I also have started preparing for a trip to Eilat with the Norwegian Rarities Committee in the beginning of april next year, by sketching from the internet. Looking forward to close encounters with species like Woodchat Shrike and Isabelline Wheatear.

Oooh those owls....superb. Brings back memories of trips to Finland and Sweden, lucky enough in Sweden to see a male displaying on a rather frosty morning!

Hi Oivind,

I've been away from the forum for quite awhile myself - so taking some time to have a look and see what I've been missing - first thread I landed on was yours...absolutely amazing work - hawk owls are fabulous...

Thank you all for encouraging comments! Mayoayo: I think he said "what is this bloke doing without a camera?" That is one thoroughly photographed owl. Where did you learn Norwegian, by the way??

All really wonderful. But those owls are spectacular. You really have a masterful way with watercolor.
