Snowy Owl Still at Parker River

We took at ride to Parker River Wildlife Refuge on Mother’s Day and came across this bittersweet sight. We are not birders, but we know enough to understand that snowy owls typically leave this area well before now to return north. We don’t know what is keeping this one around but it seemed to me to act sick or in distress. It’s mouth was wide open several times in the few minutes that we stuck around and I have not seen that too often in other snowy owl encounters. It was tough to watch but I am going to share it anyhow to remind us all that Mother Nature knows what She is doing…….

  1. I read on the Parker River fb page that experts checked the snowy owl out and they believe him/her to be in good condition. They say it is probably a young owl that is just late in returning. Good news.
