the Snowy Owl. Hooked up with Jim shortly after 8:00 am this morning, and sure enough he was sitting a metal post; however a fair way off in the distance. And he sat and sat and stayed on this post for almost an hour and a half as my feet started to feel the cold passing through my boots and frost forming on my beard. After which he took off and flew further away into the field, sat there for a couple of minutes and then really flew the coop and sat on an electrical pole about 1/2 kilometre away. Decided it was time to pack up and get some breakfast!
Thanks Jim for sharing your experience with me, I can now add the image of another new bird to my portfolio.
