Bird Photography Weekly # 61


This photo is from this past January, the Snowy Owls were reported being seen all along the East coast. The Snowy owl was one bird I just had to see and top on my list, I talked hubby into walking on the Assateague beach for 3 1/2 miles one way to see this Snowy owl. The photo is cropped, I did not want to get too close and spook the beautiful owl.



This Snowy Owl was seen sitting on the top off a sand dune on the Assateague beach.

  11. Oh my gosh..what a treat to see these beautiful raptors. I like that you didn't want to disturb it. For some people seeing it is more important...Michelle

  14. Great Owl photos, Eileen! This is one the birds I want to see before I leave the U.S. for good. But...travel to the East Coast is out of the question at the moment.

  18. Excellent shots of the Snowy Owl Eileen! I would have walked as far as I had to to see that bird. I will be looking for sightings of this bird closer to California and try to catch it this winter.

  20. Wow, that is awesome! We would see the snowies once in a great while where I grew up in the Alleghenies--folks said it was because the snowshoe rabbit population had crashed so they came south for food.

Hello, Thanks for stopping by my blog. This is my blog about the birds I see, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. They might not always be the best of photos because I like to keep photos as a record of where and when I see them.
I appreciate all your comments and I will always try to return the favor and visit your blog.

Due to some recent problems I will not be able to publish any comments that include a link. I would appreciate if you do not include any kind of links in your comments. Sorry!
