Snowy's, Snowy's, Snowy's, Grey, and A Prairie Falcon (20140127)
I am certain that viewers are getting tired of all the moose shots this month so I thought that I would see if there were any Snowy owls to be found. It has been a month or more that I have expended a concerted effort for these birds. Conditions were supposed to be ideal, -18C with a clear sunny sky, so off I headed. 8:45 was the time I found my first bird of the day, a fence line bird.
The Grey Partridge were being more accommodating than usual, this is a group of 5 of about 30-35 birds that were in this particular field.
That shot was taken just before 2:00 p.m. making a super finish to the day. 12 Snowy owls, and a Prairie, with probably 130-200 Grey Partridge. Come on down and have an exceptional day with me.
