Carnivorous Plant Addict
My main hobby is wildlife photography. I especially like owls.
Depends which one, but the snowy owls are easy to find here, they are everywhere in winter. I remember one winter, a snowy owl spent the winter in a small area near an industrial park here and at the highway exit. there is a very small parcel of land there where the exit turn around and that bird was there most of the winter. I don't know what it was eating, maybe rats near the food plan. A lot of them starve to death in winter, especially the young owls. Also sometimes there is no snowy owls here in winter. It all depend how much food they have up north.Omg. That is incredible. Where do you go to find them?? I like wildlife photography as well...but I am no where close to your league.
It's very difficult to capture a good photograph from hawk along roads as usually as soon as you stop the car, it will fly away. Rough legged hawk are very skittish. Northern owls are usually not too skittish.Thanks for the explanation Daniella. I guess I just need to look around more carefully. I see hawks around the highways when I am driving..but never really know when/where to stop to get proper pics of them. I only have a 300mm f4, so the range isn't as great. Might have to make that plunge and get a teleconverter.
