Is it true you and many others heard Mike Furtmans speach on baiting Owls with fake mice and fishing poles back in 2006? I came across this page and was amazed that Michael Furtman has been lying to the public all these years.

Can you help with locations where we can see a Connecticut Warbler?

I just noticed your galleries and am really impressed. I too like taking bird pictures so really appreciate the amount of time you have spent taking and processing your pictures. Good job.

Dear Ryan, Like Nancy Dake, I also found your site while trying to differentiate between Belted and Frosted Whitefaces. I shall enjoy looking through more of your photos when I have the time. I'm up in Ottawa, Ontario, where we have an interesting cross-section of environments to explore. Alison

Ryan - your friend, Tom Nicholls, sent me a link to your parasitic jaeger. I'm really impressed with ALL your photos! Magnificent! I have a Canon 50D and a 100-400 L lens like yours, but I've got a long way to go to catch up!

Stumbled upon your galleries while googling identification of Belted and Frosted Whitefaces! Fantastic discussion and illustrative photos. Not to mention your other wonderful galleries which I will enjoy at leisure at my earliest opportunity. Thanks for sharing both your talent and your knowledge.

Your photos are great! I found them accidently while looking for information on your Shrike lecture in Green Bay. We really enjoyed the NRF Field Trip on Banding Birds on Saturday. You have a passion for birds that is infectious--thanks for spreading it!

Mike, the source of codes used by the BBL is at Another source, which varies slightly -- including for Barred Owl -- is at

My AOU check list gives the Barred Owl code as BAOW. I may have an old list. When did the code change?

I am really enthusiastic about your site. I enjoy taking photos of anything scenic. This last year I found a young great horned owl in the area. I hope to add to it other types of owls. It appears that there are several great snowy owls in the Ashland area. I will have to come up and visit the area sometime. The gray owls are also very neat.

Hi Ryan! Your dad gave me your website address. We drive school bus for the same district. Last week we took the band to a parade. That was the first I met your dad face to face, and somehow the conversation didn't take long to end up on birds, and I am an avid birder, too. It's exciting to find fellow "bird brains". He couldn't speak enough about you and encouraged me to check out your site so here I am. You do have great photos, just as he said. I'm very impressed! Audrey Manspeaker

If I'm near Ashland on Sunday March 19th, I was wondering where is the best spot for seeint a snowy owl or gyr falcon? I'm from central WI so I'm not real familiar with roads in Ashland. Can you give me good directions and suggestions? Best time of day for viewing? Was anyone planning to go scoping on Sunday? I appreciate your advice.

Thank you for sharing your inspiring photographs! You have a gift, a zest for life that comes alive in your images. Now, can you come over sometime and watch my children so I can get outside and attempt to take photographs half as inspiring as yours! Merry Xmas. Santa Paruk

Your photographs are great. Thanks for sharing them. I love the motion of the immature Red-tailed hawk shot. I'll stay warm wqtching through your eyes.

You've got some great stuff here! I really enjoyed checking out your galleries!!!
Guest 08-Aug-2005 23:20
Wow, your predatory birds and rarities are outstanding! A definite advantage of living up north. That gyrfalcon is awesome. Are they rare as well?
Guest 01-Aug-2005 01:54
Ryan-fantastic owl shots. Have seen many owls but not the Great Grey-well done. When you get a chance take a look at my bird images. I too have a passion for birding and photographing birds.
