Snowy owls are much easier to spot at this time of year. This one was seen today at the defunct Terrace Bay airport/dragstrip today.
It's worth noting that this location is a must-stop for birders passing through the north shore. Situated right beside the TCH, just a little bit east of Terrace Bay, it ceased to operate as an airport some years ago and it now sees very limited use as a dragstrip each august. Birdwise, it offers the best piece of pseudo-tundra in the region and so is attractive to Rough-legged Hawks, Snow Buntings and Lapland Longspurs that have just passed over vast stretches of boreal forest or rocky coastline.
