Snowy Owl - return in 2016
Posted By: jpzk, 01-15-2016, 08:50 PM

That would be my second best birding spot, knowing in advance that the Snowies gather along the St Lawrence River shoreline from December onward.
This one here is likely a returning owl as it always can be found in specific spots year after year.
Enjoy!

What can I say but to second the accolades you've already received. This is a terrific capture of a stunningly beautiful bird. Hard work went into making it happen. Congratulations.

Another kind comment well appreciated, Tamia!
As for the hard work .... only once I get back home do I realize that I've spent the better part of a day "enjoying" (pun) the very cold weather.
Coffee is one great friend during those outings!
Cheers!

Gosh yes! It has been bitterly cold, and hard to manipulate the camera even on a tripod. Where would we be without coffee!?

Strong coffee and a tad of "extra" into it when back home!

Thanks Norm !
Seems like the Snowies have migrated quite a bit more south for the past two winters.
Even here, the numbers are down and we get reports of sightings where they shouldn't be!
Not sure if that is the "El Nino! or global climate change (or both?) but it is definitely different.
Cheers!
