Snowy Owls - released back to the wild. March 2014

A second year male snowy owl from The Owl Foundation being released back in the wild.
Donna Hayes did the honours with Myriam helping. Donna was having trouble holding his cage as he knew he was going to be released. Cage was bouncing and he was pounding the door.  It was cold it was windy and the snowy owl knew where he was going. One hop and he disappeared deep in the woodlots behind.  Stunning owl.
Photos by me.

The one hop
look at the colour on his wings


 Our second snowy owl of the day

Opening the cage for him.

Second snowy owl released.  this is a first year male snowy owl. 
Thanks to Toronto Wildlife Centre this fellow has a second chance at heading back to the arctic.  With hundreds of acres to fly with no cars, or people he should do just fine.

All photos by Donna.

ready to fly

Love this shot by Donna.  Wings wow.

out of the cage and ready to leave
what a beauty

Thank you to David and Myriam for allowing us to do the release at your farm.
