March 2nd, 2012 – Avian Friday: Winter Visitor

I hope you all are not getting tired of these Snowy Owl images. I shot a ton of them during my brief visits to British Columbia last month and I probably have quite a few more keepers that i have yet to post. We have seen an abundance of these great birds here in the Pacific Northwest this year. They have been wintering here in unusually high numbers prior to their return to their Arctic habitats.
