Snowy owl perched

I hung out with a Snowy owl for quite a while the other afternoon.  I settled in a little ways off from the telephone pole that was serving as the scouting perch with the hopes of a dive down into the snow for a field mouse caught unaware below.

That didn’t happen but I enjoyed watching this beautiful, heavily barred owl as it scanned its surroundings.  I never think it’s a waste of time to spend time with wild creatures and get to learn a bit more about their ways.

  1. These are all nice photos Lynda. The geese are wonderful. Do yours make “good
    watch” geese?

  2. I have a “thing” for owls and snowy owls are one of my favorites. I’ve never seen one live, but they sure are beautiful.

  5. Agreed – that’s never a waste of time. Quite the opposite!
