Finland Eagle Owl and Golden Eagle Extension Workshop Report

September 18th - September 23rd 2023

In late September 2023, I ran an extension for the participants in the Wild Wolves of the Taiga Forest workshop (Read the Trip Report) in northern Finland for golden eagles and eagle owls. Northern Finland is one of the best places to see and photograph these amazing birds reliably, and late September provides lovely colour in the boreal forest. Fortuitously, we had excellent photographic encounters with both species and many smaller bird species. We also had a miraculous encounter with a Eurasian Pygmy Owl.
