    Picture of a beautiful Snowy Owl

    I took this picture of a snowy owl yesterday and just had to share. We haven't had any snow this winter in this part of Kansas but for some reason or other, these little birds are all around this city.

    It was featured on the news the other day about the snowy owls showing up much further south than their regular range. It is probably due to a sudden decrease in food and an over population of owls in the arctic. The younger owls are looking for food and territory. We have had them appear here in Washinton too but I haven't seen one yet (but definitely looking). Great picture.

    Sweet! We had an owl land on our grandson's swing set and by the time we grabbed the camera, he flew away.
    Great picture!!!

    I would love to see one of these raptors in the wild. I love birds of prey. I see lots of hawks here and I know we have some owls cause I see the feathers . I only heard of snowy owls around here once . It made a nest in an old barn. Beople drove form miles around to try to get a glimpse of it according to the local paper.

    How beautiful! I have 9 pairs of cardinals feeding regularly at my birdfeeders. If I forget to fill the feeders, they sit looking at the kitchen window. The tree looks like a Christmas tree with red lights on it.

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.
