It was a beautiful sunny day and not too cold. Even on our way to church this morning we had decided to go for a drive this afternoon. Having heard that Snowy Owls had been reported to the west of us, it wasn't hard to decide where we were going.
Here's the one owl we saw, sitting on top of a telephone pole in a flat open landscape of farms. This is a concession or three just northwest of Chesley.
This owl sat still, just swivelling it's head around nearly 360°. Given the amount of dark barring on the wings, this is probably an immature owl or a female. Males are more completely white.
Surprisingly to me, these photos were taken both with an iphone7 and my big Nikon with a 200mm.
