The weather this past Sunday was not particularly hospitable with temperatures below freezing and steady snow. Most animals had opted to lie low and stay sheltered.
This Great Horned Owl wisely chose to do just that, staying as sheltered as possible in a tree that had a few remaining leaves.There were enough leaves missing through that my friend Bill easily spotted it and let me know about the find.
Needless to say, the owl was in no rush to leave its perch, rightly opting to sit tight in the cold weather. When I got home I realized that the poor thing had ice and snow caked onto its face, an indication of just how inhospitable the conditions were.
