Snowy Owl

My Saturday Bird this week is the Snowy Owl (Bubo scandiacus). It is a winter visitor to southern Canada and the northern U.S. in variable numbers year to year.

This individual lingered in southern Ontario in the spring and was photographed in early May. I suspect that it was digesting a recent meal as there was mud and a trace of blood around the birds bill.
