First snow of the winter season set in today, and with it came my first Snowy Owl photo of the season. A note related to this photo - whether a good or bad idea, the Montreal Airport authority has a fauna control officer who I saw while taking this photo setting a large trap. The plan is to capture the owl and I believe to relocate it farther away from the airport. My thought - the Snowy Owl is rather stationary and insignificant compared to other hazards that airplanes face such as large flocks of Canada Geese, etc.

Something a bit different...an upload from my iPhone. Last year we had a Black-capped Chickadee family. I’ve never seen their nest so decided to check out the old nest. A stunning masterpiece for such a small creature with no hands. Some moss, dry grass, and in the centre right, finer material. Not sure if they will want to reuse this birdhouse.

Another species cracks the 100 upload club :)
North Saanich, BC. It's interesting how this bird's throat is rather dark.

Our friend is back in the yard. Not sure if it's the same exact bird, or perhaps a young bird from last year - but was happy to see him return. Delta, BC

After an unprecedented week of extreme weather, with temperatures below -10C and a snow storm of 35cm, the Anna's Hummingbirds were pushed to the limit. I found this one hiding in a hedge. We've kept the water from freezing as much as possible. As with so many bird photos, the story behind the photo makes for a lasting memory. Happy Holidays to all.

This male surprisingly didn't fly away as we walked by to the Bentsen-Rio Grande Park visitor's centre.

Thanks to Lou for correcting me that this was a Red-tailed Hawk and not a Swainson's dark phase. City of Rocks Reserve, Idaho.

About 2 min after this bird zipped by, a Willet and a Marbled Godwit, along with several dozens sandpipers came in the opposite direction - amazing what he can flush. Boundary Bay, BC.

Magnificent Eagle decided to perch in a place where the Vancouver north shore mountains could be seen in behind. Taken at Boundary Bay.
