Handsome in White

I couldn't resist when I spotted this beautiful Snowy Owl on our way to load and move more hay bales today.  Out of the 10 spotted yesterday, 2 were mature owls flaunting a very white plumage.  Well, this handsome old lad definitely has Snowy Owl charisma!  I wonder how old and wise he truly is???  In the days and weeks to come, we will be bidding them farewell as they begin to migrate back north.  Here's hoping we can see a few more before they go.  

As the clouds rolled in, we enjoyed working in +10C temperatures!  A drastic change from last weekend ... in fact, nearly a 50 - 60 degree change in temperature (especially if you include the nasty wind chills that blew threw the province last weekend)!  We traded in our toques and heavy winter jackets for ball caps and light sweaters today!  Perhaps Spring really will surface in the near future!


  1. Wow, that owl look gorgeous - so crispy white! Nice blog you have, I´ll come back. :-)

  2. I have never seen a snowy owl.... they are so beautiful. lucky you ~
    Isn't it wonderful, winter beginning to mingle with spring.... ah the circle turns.
