Snowy Owl

    Newer Older

    The predictions for a very cold winter in B.C. seem to be coming true. We haven't had snowy owls at Boundary Bay since 2004. This individual's early arrival suggests that conditions further north are probably very cold indeed. She was one of four that I saw today. Each attracted a large following of photographers. When a group got too close, she fortuitously flew in my direction.
