  • Snowy Owl


    Saw this today on the way to Walmart.
    On second thought, probably not ideal for reference photos but still nice to look at

      Nikki, I agree, very nice to look at. We don't get much in the way of snowy owls in Louisiana! Thanks for posting.

          Rodent control at it's finest... lol. They sure are beautiful birds , we usually have a few visit each year here on the coast. They seem to prefer the barren headlands....... probably reminds them of their arctic habitat.
          If you're looking for me, you'll find me in a pile of wood chips somewhere...

              Yes he was quite interesting in me and I was surprised he didn’t fly away.

                They probably can see their prey better with the barren open fields.

                  I heard that Grandpa kept all birds from the barn (massive frame thing turn of the century) but allowed the Snowy Owl the run of the farm. Naturally it was a Horse drawn everything farm.

                    They do some north-south seasonal migrations in Canada.
                    Most common prey are the ubiquitous Ruffed Grouse.

                    If you live near farm country, go for a midnight drive = owl spotting.
