Tuesday Bonus Pix

by Lanny McDowell on January 27, 2009

Bonus pix are issued any day I feel like it.  Today is Tuesday.  Usually the photos are from the day I publish the blog and are usually not from stock files. 

The young BC Night Heron hangs out near the Felix Neck waterfowl pond, which is frozen.  Thanks to Susan Bellincampi for her report to the Bird Hotline (  508-627-4922  ) for that.  The  two snowies were out at Long Point WR late today.

Great snowies. First documentation that snowy owls have a sense of humor.

I cannot say I know much about interpreting Snowy Owl facial expression. I do believe that under the circumstances this open beak look was more of a snarl. As amusing as I might be from time to time, the owl looked to be backing off my approach. It never flew off its perch as I approached, took the photos, spoke to a jogger running and huffing right by me (and the owl) and moved on back to my car in the near dark. Non-plused.
