I heard that there were some snowy owls at Fish Point. I've never seen a snowy owl in person, so it was kind of an experience. It's not too far of a drive from here, so I decided to head up there.
It wasn't too hard to spot my first owl. There was a car in a parking lot nearby and if I've learned anything in my years of watching trains and boats, where there are other people, it's a good bet there is something to be photographed.
There was an owl there but she(?) was a little on the far side, so I had to blow up this picture quite a bit to get her picture.
I will have to admit, they are very nice looking birds. The white stood out against the field. I would imagine that wouldn't be the case if there was more snow on the ground.
I just love those yellow eyes.
She was keeping an eye on us.
And then she took to flight. I think she might have been hunting.
Again, a very graceful looking bird.
Then I went to another spot and saw another owl. Again, I think this was a female. Apparently the males are pure white.
