Our first day on Amherst Island Paul and I saw nine Snowy Owls in our drive around the island!!! Unfortunately most of them didn’t want to be photographed so the only shots we got were of their butt as they were flying away from us. And while this is a nice butt we would have preferred a look back at least. Check out these furry feet and talons!
And that was the way most of the week went until the day we were supposed to go home when we found some who didn’t seem to mind being photographed! Needless to say we both extended our vacation by a day. Thanks again bossman.
This is a bad picture but these two birds were hanging out together for the two days that we were photographing them. I don’t think they’re a mated pair since one of them looks like a first year male but I don’t know much about Snowy Owls so who knows.
Although I thoroughly enjoyed photographing the Snowy Owls, I was very disappointed that we weren’t able to feed and photograph the chickadees. Owl Woods, the area where we did that the last time we were there, was closed due to hunting of all things! grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
