Snowy owl

There have been numerous reports on eBird this winter of an ‘invasion’ of these amazing birds spreading into this part of the world, far to the south of their normal range. There have been at least two sightings in the part of Lambton County I regularly commute through so I’ve kept an eye out in the fields out as I thought to do so.

I happened to glance up, saw this individual as I passed the hydro pole it perched on, said ‘Wow’ and braked hard to a stop. Whipped out the Fuji camera (like yesterday the winner of the ‘PlayBook or Fuji? decision process) and took a few photos. Then decided to risk having the owl fly away as I backtracked to a position up-sun of it and managed to capture a couple photos.

I never expected to see one of these magnificent birds. Fate, karma, whatever, blessed me. How blessed I am.
