Pole-sitting?

2012 - Day 23. Jan. 23, 2012.

Don't know if he's going for a record, but this snowy owl has been hanging around the Collingwood Airport, usually coming to rest on this hydro pole. (Thanks for tipping me off Cathy!)

The snowy owl usually resides in the Arctic tundra but migrates south to hunt during the winter months. While they're often reported as winter visitors to Northern Ontario,we rarely see them this far south.

I took this shot yesterday with my 300mm lens, handheld, my husband parked down the road a bit making sure I didn't get hit by passing cars ;-)
