The Snowy Owls are back

Back in Quebec after a week in England, snow on the ground, in St-Lazare at least, three Snowy Owls out around St-Clet and White-winged Crossbills feeding in the garden.

The trip back was interesting, the flight back ended in New Jersey when the Montreal leg was cancelled due to the weather. With options limited, a 24h delay or drive back, we chose the later and what fun it turned out to be. It snowed in the Adirondaks, several cars left the road, we were not one of them! We got home around 2.am, 24.5 hours after setting off from Preston, Lancashire.

Below a couple of shots and a short video of feeding crossbills.
