They say we are having an irruption of Snowy owls this year - something to do with the lemmings up north.Lovely to see photos of them - hope to see one in person soon.
Yes lots of first year snowies and not enough lemmings for them up north. I hope you succeed in seeing one in person real soon.
Hi JacquesWe saw a snowy owl in the fields of the Experimental Farm in Ottawa on Saturday Dec 14. It was having to fend off a murder of crows. It sat down on the field while the crows were flying and swooping down on it. Will they try to kill the owl? What are its chances? I know that hawks sometimes are attacked and sometimes injured/killed by crows, as we found a injured furry leg morph hawk two years ago. It died.Donna
Thanks for your comments Donna. Nice to know you saw a Snowy Owl in Ottawa. I think the snowy should be able to defend itself. after a while the crows will become disinterested and they will leave it alone. Jacques
