Stygian Owl Photo by: Jim Culbertson 26 December 1996 Bentsen State Park near Mission, TX Hidalgo County
At the time a first for the ABA area, this Stygian Owl was
discovered by Nathan Wright and his parents John and Paula Wright
of Greenville, North Carolina, when it was seen being harassed
by a Gray Hawk. The bird remained all day at this perch providing
great views for lucky folks like Jim and Pat Culbertson. Jim
photographed it from about 60 feet away with an EF 300mm F2.8
lens and Canon 2x extender. The bird was last seen flying off
at dusk. It was never relocated.
