There is a snowy owl irruption. Perhaps you have been as fortunate as me to have spotted one or more of these magnificent birds.
Most days since then I have driven from my house to the various places in the immediate area where the snowy owl has been spotted. I wanted to capture a closer picture of the snowy owl and, if possible, lower to the ground.
Today my husband and I went for a drive in search of the snowy owl.
We drove a little farther north, where a snowy owl had been spotted on other days. We looked but didn’t see any signs of an owl. The snowy owl blends in well with the snow, so we might just not be seeing it. We decided to do a U-turn and return to where we had spotted the owl sitting on top of the utility pole. The owl wasn’t there; however, we spotted it just across the street on another utility pole. The utility pole it was perched on was the same pole where I had first seen the snowy owl on January 14th. We parked along the side of the road. As I was getting out of the car, the owl flew off the pole to the field behind the pole. I walked across the field to a wire fence. I searched the ground for the snowy owl. After a couple minutes, I spotted it!
What a magnificent bird!

Gorgeous Snowy Owl photos, Linda! I loved them all. They are harder to spot on the ground and in the snow. Great post.
