Elusive Snowy Owls

Photos by BarrytheBirder

Try as I may, I just can't seem to get close to the one or two Snowy Owls that are calling the Holland Marsh home for the winter.   The Snowy Owl in the picture above was about 150 metres away and although I waited, it would not turn around.   Nearby,  a Red-tailed Hawk (below) was similarly reluctant to allow me a close-up photo.  Ah well, any day seeing owls and hawks is a good day.
