It appears we may have another winter of 2013/2014 in the making. According to one scientist, it was a bumper year for nest snowy owls with numbers similar to 2013 and near the same location. They've already started to show up in good numbers and as far south as Oklahoma. The young fellow showed up about 30 minutes away in southern Wisconsin yesterday.

This guy wasn't exactly in a natural winter setting, but I'm sure there will be no shortage of great photo ops over the next few months.

Here's to another long winter of big white birds!

Super shots, we're hoping they will return here in the PNW this year as well.

I think you're both in luck, several sightings in NW Washington State and SW BC.

Beautiful images, Scott. Thanks for posting. Knew about Wa but not BC. I will be scouting next week.

Very nice! I had one show up at where I work thursday, way down here in MD. I think that might be a bad sign for the winter, along with the black wooly bears.
