A story that was published on the website in late November included some photographs of and a story about my encounter with a Snowy Owl that visited my town of Edmonds, Washington – spending several days sitting on the breakwater in the harbor and then moving on.
This morning I had an encounter with another Snowy Owl in downtown Edmonds when it flew over my car with a pack of crows in hot pursuit. After flying past me, the owl landed on a nearby roof top and I was able to stop and get some photographs of it. Unfortunately it was a very cloudy and gray day so there isn’t a very nice background for the photos and the owl’s perch is the roof of someone’s house, rather than a nice log or tree, but it was still great to get some photographs of the owl.
I definitely consider myself lucky to have had two unexpected encounters with Snowy Owls in the past month, and in both cases only about a mile from my house in a part of the world where these owls are pretty rare! I can’t get enough of these wonderful owls.
