(posted by Victoria)
With a white whoosh of feathers, the snowy owl descends, hovering
over unsuspecting voles and ground squirrels. Watching from its perch,
the yellow eye of the owl spots its prey.
I would love to see this bird close up, but it tends toward remote
areas. Climate change is a threat to the snowy owl, and many
other birds. Aren’t they worth saving?
A thinning of trees
in dead of Winter, bird hunts
where to build nest?
