Snowy Owl

It’s been a while since I’ve had a chance to check on the Snowy activity. Now with the warmer temps the dirt roads will be very greasy and some/most impassable…which means some white knuckle driving if attempted ?

This year’s sightings have been good and I was able to spend a fare amount of time out-n-about.

The chances of finding owls in new locations will now increase as they soon will begin to start moving back up North.

It’s Getting Close

Close to the middle of March and the thoughts of Peregrines returning is now on my mind. We are now underway and have already begun to prep for another season.
The question that’s always on our minds at this time is…will Princess (Minneapolis hatch 2002) again return for another season ?
As you know she returned last year for her 15th season at the Radisson but they hadn’t produced any eggs.
Last year the first bird back was March 17th…so it’s a wait and see when and who will return this year.
Stay tuned as the clock ticks down.

Gray Owl Search Put on Hold

The endless search for Great Grays has been a disappointment this year. Now that we are nearing the middle of March the owls will soon setting up territories and then the matting process.

After many miles and hours logged coming home with no rewards has become frustrating…the same goes for other photographer friends.

It is what it is and Mother Nature isn’t always cooperative…there will be next year.
