Snowy Owl

I had my first sighting of a snowy owl yesterday on the pier opposite the lighthouse at the St. Joseph channel. I first saw him sitting on the top of the channel marker. As I got closer (down a long icy path in subzero temperatures I might add), he flew off and landed in the middle of my pathway back to land. What an amazing wing span and awesome bird!
