Yes, a Snowy Owl!


Finally,  I got a day off from working at the Jekyll Island Guest Information Center.  Guess what was the first thing I did?  If you guessed go out and see a Snowy Owl, you would be correct.  I have made several attempts to see this very lost bird but my timing was off.  But not today, December 19, 2012...
At first he was out on a condo where we could only see his head.  But he then he flew.  He flew right toward us and he landed on the condo.  I never get tired of looking at this species.  I have seen it in the several places.  I just never thought I would see one a couple miles from my house.  What a treat!  Keep on birding,  you never know when a bird will surprise you!

What a great experience! I recently visited Jekyll Island and spoke to a man running a charter boat business who spoke of the Snowy Owl. Making a second trip to the island is on the top of my birding site list. Thank you for posting the picture.
