The Twelve Days of Birding (#4)




On the Fourth Day of Christmas, winter gave to me:

4 Snowy Owls!

In the December of 2012, we went on a Snowy Owl hunt in which we saw 4 owls. 2 were sitting on hills, looking exactly like snowed-over logs, while the other 2 were placed down a lane on the side of the road, one in a tree, one on a pole.

It may sound simple, but it can take up to 24 hours to find one! Last year was an irruption year, meaning that more owls came into our general area then usual. They are out there, but this year we’ve gone out twice to find them, but for us it’s been an owl-less year.
