Arctic Owls

 

Scandinavia has a wide diversity of owl species occurring in the boreal forests and the Arctic tundra further north. In the large tracts of boreal forests we will search for Eurasian Pygmy, the massive Great Grey, Boreal, Long-eared, Ural, Northern Hawk- and Eurasian Eagle-Owls The more open areas nearby should hold Short-eared Owl. Further north we will search the tundra for Snowy Owl, probably the world’s most easily recognizable owl species.

Please peruse our Birding Tour Finland: Owls, Taiga and Fjords details, but ask us if you want to custom-make for owls.

Finland for bird photography:
About Finland I can tell you that we had very good opportunities to take photos. We got superb photos of species such as Western Capercaillie, Black Grouse, Hazel Grouse, Great Grey Owl, Ural Owl, Northern Hawk Owl, Pygmy-Owl, Short-eared Owl, Common Goldeneye, Whooper Swan, Common Crane, Parrot Crossbill, Red-flanked Blue-tail, Rustic Bunting, Red-breasted Merganser, Red-necked Grebe, Siberian Jay, Siberian Tit, Willow Tit, Honey-buzzard, Temminck’s Stint, Common Redshank, Baltic and Little Gulls, Eurasian Jackdaw, Hooded Crow, Arctic Tern, Common Cuckoo, Three-toed Woodpecker and Pied Flycatcher.

We also take nice photos of Dotterel, Black-throated Diver, Ruff, Sedge and Icterine Warblers, Red-breasted Flycatcher, Fieldfare, Eurasian Wryneck, Common Redpoll and some other birds.

We missed Terek Sandpiper (we saw it but we can’t take any photos) but another group took very good photos of it before we arrived to the place where the bird was.

To me, it has been an excellent trip to take photographs, plenty of good chances. Undoubtedly it has been the best trip I have made ever in Europe from this point of view.
