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.

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.

To our surprise a pair of Yellow-rumped Warblers has been visiting the yard. Here, already with insects in its beak and then waiting for the suet feeder to further stock up. Delta, BC

Conditions at their worst during this shot. However I was lucky to be up-wind when this flock landed nearby. I observed some habits of the Snow Bunting - always attempting to face the wind, and often looking downward even when not feeding. One of my favourite species...at Mirabel, Quebec
