Snowy Owl (188) (Nyctea scandiaca) User: Brian  (See all photos - 934) (Comments - 1945)
Canada (Ontario) Kingston - Sentinel. She was scouting the very little open water along the ferry route for a duck meal. She almost took out a Red-breasted Merganser. Boy can these birds pour on the speed when they want to. She flew as fast as the duck but it had too much of a head start for her to catch it. A passerby asked if that was a falcon. I said no, a Snowy.

Canada St. Rose - I call this one white on white. The day had very poor sky conditions but can it ever really be a bad day to take a Snowy picture? At least it wasn't on a pole.

Canada (Ontario) St. Isidore - apparently this bird is a regular at this roadside stop. On this day I could see one of its associates atop another Petro Canada sign at the same station.

Canada (Ontario) St. Rose - In my ongoing hunt for variety in Snowy Owl shots I came across this very dark juvenile female atop a fencepost. I rarely see birds at that level and the fact that she was cooperative enabled me to approach reasonably close without flushing. I used the car as a blind.

Canada (Ontario) St. Isidore - I thought I'd include a novelty shot. First time I've had a good look at a Snowy Owl's tongue.

Canada (Ontario) St. Isidore - I got lucky. About one bird in 40 is an older adult male. I waited for 75 minutes for this bird to do something besides sit atop an ugly power pole with its eyes closed. It began hunting and moved to a better perch, with its eyes open.

Canada (Qu├ębec) In a nature scene I've not witnessed, this Snowy Owl suddenly went into a defensive posture. At the same time, one of the observers standing next to me yelled out "Gyrfalcon!". One had been reported in the Mirabel area harassing Snowy Owls last week. It turned out to be a Peregrine Falcon in the end, but an interesting encounter nonetheless.
