These are such beautiful birds. I'd be happy with either one of these shots Rick, they're great.

Do you guys have snow yet though? I bet it's snow that drives them south, not just the cold. They sure are beauties.

Great shots. If I tried that I would get nothing but air. Which lens were you using?

Excellent shots. Recently I've been monitoring this list for Snowy shots. Now that I know that they are back I'm going have to make the trip south of Ottawa to see if I can get some shots.

Great shoots, I love them both. The colors in the background makes the owl stand out really nice.
