As promised here is the latest on the tagged Snowy Owl.
This bird was tagged in 2011,near Swift Current Saskatchewan.
The owl was likely 2 or 3 years old at the time.The information collected as a result of this tagging has shed light on the migratory patterns of these birds and also their lifespan.
This program has now been ended.
The owl I was privileged to photograph was the first tagged owl reported in Manitoba,so it is considered somewhat special.
It is a female as can be seen by all the barring on the plumage.
In keeping with a Snowy Owl,I wanted to show you one more frost picture.One day I noticed that the frost was especially delicate and looked like feathers on my windows.
Enough of wintery scenes,its time for spring.
When spring is slow in arriving outside I have to make it happen inside.a trip to the local Walmart was all I needed.A pot of Hyacinth and one of Daffodils and suddenly I have spring in my house.
Another macro of the small Hyacinth flowers.They look so cheery,standing on my kitchen table.
I made a stop at my local grocery store and what did I see.An American Robin,actually two of them,looking for small puddles of water on the parking lot.
Now that is a sure sign of spring.
Yours,O Lord,is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendour,for everything in heaven and earth is yours.
