This week’s photo, taken November 24, 2014 from the fishing pier in Edmonds, WA, features the SNOWY OWL flaring its wings for a soft landing.
I figure that few people will complain if I post a photo of the SNOWY OWL a third week in a row. After all, it’s worth viewing this marvelous creature from a few different angles, don’t you agree?
Here’s a Snowy Owl update: Apparently, for about 7 days, no one saw the Snowy Owl (or at least no one reported seeing it), until a local birder spotted it in Edmonds on Friday, December 5, perched on the roof of a house. The owl was on top of the house, NOT the birder. The owl may have plans to spend the entire winter in the Edmonds area, and we welcome it to linger as long as it wants.
I plan to focus on another bird species next week. That is, unless the Snowy Owl lands on my spotting scope, spreads its wings and says, “I’m ready for my close-up, Mr. Birder.”
