Pöllöilyä 1: Tänään – näätä!

OWLING 1: TODAY – PINE MARTEN!

Teen graduani lehtopöllöistä, minkä takia osallistun myös kenttätöihin.
I work on my thesis about tawny owls and take part in the field work because of that.

”Why doesn’t she fly already…” //
”Guess what? I pine marten has visited this nest and eaten all the chicks.” ”That’s the third or fourth sign of pine martens today.” ”Should we just change study species?”
