That sounds like some of the places around me with the snowy owls. Kind of takes away from the moment when there are 50 other photographers there. I'm picking up a Nikon mount Tammy tomorrow, can't wait to be back out shooting
And I think number of people when I was there is to see the pair of Long-eared Owl which I think it is rare in WA or in that area. But the Short-eared Owls are there always.
Snowy that is been in my list for a couple of years now and I have not seen one.
