Snowy Owl

owl 001

I was so excited when I noticed a Snowy Owl in my yard the last few days.  I saw him once and thought better of letting out my hens.

However, I thought I heard him in my front yard again last night….well apparently I was right.  He arrived again tonight just about 8:30.  The girls had gone to bed.  

This isn’t a good picture but the best I could get at this darkening hour.  I didn’t know we ever could see these around here.  I think they are a rare breed here.


Do you think he is looking at the Eagle on the flag pole across the road?


  1. Fabulous creatures!!! Careful with the hens!!

  2. Hi Karen, I suspect what you saw was really a great horned owl, they're quite common on the West Plains. Snowy owls are way-y-y up north at their summer grounds. As I write this , a young great horned is vocalizing outside my window.

    1. I actually saw him during the day and he was white and gray. Beautiful!

  3. Yes, I do think Mr. Owl is checking out the flagpole! Have a great Wed.

  4. WOW..Great catch with the lens...
