This week’s photo, taken November 24, 2014 from the fishing pier in Edmonds, WA, features the aforementioned SNOWY OWL, along with a few of its “friends.”
Last week, when Edmond’s SNOWY OWL took flight over the cold waters of the Puget Sound, it certainly didn’t feel lonely since it was accompanied by 4 AMERICAN CROWS and 4 GLAUCOUS-WINGED GULLS. The owl and its entourage flew about half a mile out over the water. When the owl decided to turn around and head back toward the breakwater, most of the gulls kept pace. Either the crows couldn’t keep up, or they simply lost interest.
For about a week now, the Snowy Owl has not been seen, neither from the Edmonds waterfront nor from anywhere else in town. Perhaps it has moved on, or possibly it will reappear – to once again excite the humans, the crows and the gulls.
