Yesterday, it was cold and windy (-13 degrees Celsius, but much colder with the wind chill). But the cold weather had given me “cabin fever” so I decided to go looking for birds. It proved to be a good day, with almost 30 species seen, and a snowy owl as well. I had hoped to catch the owl in flight, but it was content to sit on its post and watch the world go by. I was finally too cold to stay. and so, I did not manage to catch the owl in flight. Maybe next time!
Another day……another owl. Still did not manage an “in flight” picture. It remained in the tree for more than an hour and it was -20 Celsius.
In the photo above, the owl is coughing up an “owl pellet”.
