Snowy Owl (200) (Nyctea scandiaca) User: Brian  (See all photos - 982) (Comments - 2087)
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.

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.
