Snowy owl

According to The Cornell Lab, the snowy owl will even entice non-birders out for a look. I can see why. I mentioned in a previous post that I had driven north east of Calgary in search of snowy owls to no avail. Yesterday I went south east, near Frank Lake and was thrilled to find one.

I think this female was trying to cough up a pellet.

Another car pulled up causing her to take flight – truly magical.
