On this day, I headed out to the Toronto park where one is most likely to find a Snowy Owl in winter: Col Sam Smith Park.
I was not disappointed though the owl was far away.
I also found a snowy here last winter:
For a closer look, last December I visited this owl at the Toronto Zoo:
Other birds at Col Sam this morning:
In seed-time learn, in harvest teach, in winter enjoy. – William Blake (1757–1827)
The same variety of owl, or the exact same (individual) owl?
I thought you were taking a break, Miles! Wonderful way to wake up this morning, to a Snowy Owl!
A snowy owl sighting is such a nice Christmas gift. Spectacular! Thanks for sharing.
Wishing you good health and happiness.
Thank you Miles – enjoyed the last years ZOO snowy owl too as such a great look at his crazy feet – he’s got remarkable snowshoes. Thanks so much for keeping us so UP with your photos and poetry
