West End Snowy Owls with Always and Adventure

Feb 25, 2014

Today there were Rick, Josh, me, Tony and Nina.

We began at the Sarsaparilla Trail where we only saw a few common species.  So we soon headed out towards Richmond to look for Snowy Owls.

We were not disappointed!  The first one was low in a tree close to the road.  Another was on a utility pole and a third was on a distant fence post.

We carried on to Munster Side Road, then returned via Trail Road Dump.  Finally we went to Hilda, where there were an incredible 4 Snowshoe Hares.
