Hi, does anyone know how/where/when I might get some shots of owls on PEI?

Love doing nature and don't think I have ever even seen an owl on PEI.

Owls are nocturnal hunters so active mainly at night. If you see one during the day, its most likely a bit of a fluke and possible that they were woken from a nap. :lol:

The Fish and Wildlife Division of Environment does an annual owl survey across the province each spring with volunteers and Dept. staff. Basically, on a calm night, you go out on a designated route, play a series of owl calls on a portable CD player and listen for a "hoot back" of owls in the area. If you want some more info on the survey locations where there are often owls located, give Fish and Wildlife a call.

I've been a part of the survey for the past 6 years or so and its not uncommon for owls to swoop right down at the truck. Of course its dark out and it scares the hell out of you!

You can call them during the day too, just imitate their calls, they are very curious birds

I'd be careful about trying to attract Owls after seeing the Fourth Kind.... :-k

I second the owl survey. It's an interesting experience. And when you hear that first hoot back, it makes it very worthwhile. I had some fly right over my head a couple of years ago and it was incredible!
