Zenfolio | Dave Waddell's Photography | Snowy Owl: The Big Yawn

18 photos
Here are some shots of a young Snowy Owl sitting on a power pole right on the Grey County side of the County line between Bruce and Grey Counties....he however kept returning to Bruce County so i think he liked it here...ha!
Having spent the long night hunting, this was one tuckered out little fellow and i tried to get as close as possible on a blue/grey winter day to get some good shots with my old lens.
I don't think i have ever seen a bird yawn like this so i ripped off as many shots as i could.....if it is possible to feel affection for a bird then i definitely feel something for this guy.

Fantastic photos, I have been hoping to see a snowy owl for years, but here in VT and new england it is a rare occurrence.
