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.

|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.

|Love this shot by Donna. Wings wow.|
Thank you to David and Myriam for allowing us to do the release at your farm.
Oh my this bird was my favourite of the trip. Look at that hairdo and you should see him dance. Like a ballerina. Make sure you blow up these shots so you can see his hair and bill.

|Little Blue Heron |
Donna and I had a great time watching the fishermen. All the egrets and pelicans would fly in to watch.
