Snowy Owl

Snowy Owl (Click to see the larger version)

I thought the Snowy Owl parade was over at Montrose but this morning I saw a heavily marked individual on the fishing pier. The bird was initially near the beach but flew down and landed on the ice inside the fishhook part of the pier. As I was leaving I checked the pier again and the bird was back up on it near the light tower. This is the first Snowy Owl I’ve seen at Montrose in several weeks and the first of the year.
