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!
