Snowy Owl–The “Dark One”

Snowy Owl

 

Snowy Owl

Snowy Owls are still in the news, with some being seen south of us in Lancaster, and other places, too.  So, I decided to add one more post (at least) with photos of the “Dark One” that I described in my last post.  It is so dark, that it is easily identified as a female.  Adult males are almost white, with juvenile males and females darker.  This bird drew a lot of attention with its white face and black hood, and very dark barred body.  It eluded capture several times, so it was never banded or fitted with a transmitter.  More about this bird appears in Snowy Owls: It’s been Nice Knowing You!
