Big show

A great gray owl sits on a downed spruce tree just off West Hill Road early Monday evening. The owl caused a small traffic jam as people stopped to view and photograph it.

Young bird watcher Landon Bunting first sighted the owl and told another birder, Jason Sodergen, who then put out an alert on the Kachemak Bay Birders email list.

“It was just an amazing event,” Sodergen said. “It was great to see it.”
