A rare visitor - post breeding dispersal?

This photograph was taken at Reifel Bird Sanctuary.

I know of only one possible sighting of this species in Stanley park and that was from 2005 (?) when I just missed an encounter. Soon after leaving a naturalist/photographer near Prospect Point when he encountered a probable Long-Eared Owl.

For more information and range, etc. I suggest a visit to (Long-Eared Owl).
