Another Snowy Owl Encounter In Edmonds, Washington

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.
