It's Snowy in Albany, Oregon!
Dec 11, 2011

At our photography club meeting the other night I heard that there's a Snowy Owl less than a mile from our house. Having never seen one in the wild I decided to see if I could find it this afternoon. While my wife went to Macy's perfume sale with the girls, I took my K20D and M500/4.5 and went owl hunting.

The drive was barely long enough for the truck to start pumping out heat. A couple of birders got there at the same time I did. I searched the tree line while they climbed the small hill to one side. Turned out he was perched on a post on the other side of the hill.
