Snowy Owl (Nyctea scandiaca) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1352)
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.

Interesting to learn the habits. I'm just glad there was enough food to support all these birds!

Starvation was really not an issue this winter and now they have even more food to eat with mice and voles scurrying about with no snow cover and a new brood already here.
