Snowy Owl Yoga

Last Friday, one of the Snowy Owls we watched spent quite a bit of time cleaning it's feathers.

I was amazed how far down it's back it could reach. It almost looks like it's head is detached.

As it was preening the feathers on it's back it must have spotted something off in the distance that caught it's attention. The owl held this position for about 20 seconds before continuing to preen.

Then the feet needed attention.

Then the tail.

Finally done.

We keep hearing about the "snowy owl invasion", but so far I've only seen one this winter, so they must be invading areas other than around here!
