Owls and Other Birds
Arvin, Dave and I drove to Boundary Bay in British Columbia in search of snowy owls. This is the first owl we saw. He was not far from the path and we were lucky to get good pictures of him. I thought he was a snowy owl at the time but later questioned my identification because of the shape of his face. I think actually this is a short eared owl. We saw several and this one looks just like the ones I found on the Internet.
Further along the path we did see snowy owls. There were two in the same field further along the path, within reach of my telephoto lens. One was perched on a large stump and the other was sitting on the ground. There were more of them on the roof of a nearby building.
