Snowy Owl (207) (Nyctea scandiaca) User: Ivan M  (See all photos - 314) (Comments - 37)
Canada (Ontario) The 2013/14 winter has seen a huge invasion of Snowy Owls... too bad that the only one I could capture on a photo was looking the other way!! But what a great bird!

Canada (Québec) Gatineau - Looking back over this amazing winter for Snowy Owls, I never thought I'd come up with a picture like this. A returning bird has probably been around for a couple of weeks and who knows when it will decide to depart. Seeing this species in such a setting is totally unexpected. This completes my run for 225 birds.

Canada (Ontario) Kingston - Moments before sunset, this juvenile female presented herself for a photo op. The season is almost done; the numbers are dwindling rapidly. Our wintering birds have left and those that were in the U.S. and stopped over briefly are moving on.

Canada (Ontario) Ottawa - I thought I was done with Snowy Owl pictures but the birds decided otherwise. Only in migration can you find individuals willing to tolerate each other's presence. The sight of a 'flock' of Snowies is not what most expect to see. There were six birds present in a very tight area, two or three usually together most of the time. At one point four birds within 15 feet of each other.

Canada (Ontario) Ottawa - It's odd to see one on the grass rather than snow.

Canada (Ontario) Lancaster - This may look like just another Snowy Owl but for me it is special. This is #175. I would never have believed that milestone could be achieved in one season but it was reached and surpassed today by several more. I have never seen this many in my life before, much less seeing them in one winter.

Canada (Ontario) Cobourg - This is a winter like no other. A while ago I set a goal of hopefully seeing 100 Snowies this winter. I surpassed that target some time ago and have spotted 150 in Eastern Ontario alone with a few in other parts of the province like this bird. It would be possible to see 175 In Eastern Ontario but it would take some work and a lot more driving.There will be many fond memories. I anticipated that we would start to see birds returning from the U.S. around mid-month. Last night in Cornwall I found an old adult male, no visible marks, atop a light (so I could clearly see it with binoculars even at 10 p.m.) This is a new bird locally. Keep your eyes open for more arrivals.

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.
