Our Sunday visit from a snowy owl.

We’ve been keeping an eye on this girl all morning. At 8am, when I left to get the family some breakfast, our next door neighbor alerted me to the snowy owl sitting across the street on another neighbor’s roof. That neighbor no longer lives in the house, so I suppose it’s as quiet a place as any in the middle of the ‘burbs for a bird to stop.

As of 2pm, the bird is still sitting right there. Why, we don’t know. People tell me it’s normal, but she was getting harried by crows earlier and never moved. She’s still alert, with her head on a swivel. But not going anywhere. Such a beautiful bird, we wish her the best!
