For the most part a Snowy will stay perched on a pole when a vehicle passes by.
I had stopped a couple poles away and noticed headlights approaching in the distance…first thought was to wait till they passed.
Then heard the rattle,rattle,clang, bang and realized that this truck was pulling a trailer full of who knows what…second thought was so much for this Snowy.
So now sure that Mr. Farmer and his noise machine would spook the owl I simple waited with high hopes the owl would fly in my direction.
Thanks Mr Farmer…it worked out well.
