Snowy Owl

Bubo scandiacus


Snowy Owls have been easy to find in the northeast this year. This time while I was at the Dead Creek Wildlife Management Area in Addison, Vermont I was lucky enough to get a few shots of this owl in flight.

Don't I know it, Arya! Don't get me started on Tom and how jealous he makes me with his fabulous birds and fabulous photos of them!

Ashley, there seems to be several people on PN that know how to find the best subjects and Tom is definitely one of them!

Thanks Adarsha and Bill. I went out today and saw 4 more Snowies, but it was snowing and not very good conditions for pictures of them. But they did look nice in the snow!

These are fantastic! Still haven't spotted any Tom, but I'm pretty persistent. Been heading toward the northern counties closer to Chicago. Seems like those are the hotter areas according to the map link you gave me. Glad you have had so much success with them, and thanks for sharing them with us!
