Snowy Owl at Lakeshore State Park in Milwaukee Wisconsin on December 3, 2019

Birding Lakeshore State Park this morning in Milwaukee I came across a Snowy Owl sitting on a deck. I hide out of sight and took a couple of shots. A walker with a dog on a leash near the area must have caught the eyes of the Snowy Owl as it suddenly flew off. It was a brief moment to see this beautiful Snowy Owl. This Snowy Owl looks like the one I photographed in a different area along the lake yesterday. It was a beautiful morning with cloudy skies to state giving way to sun later in the morning with temps around 30 degrees, but a stiff west wind. Images were taken on December 3, 2019.

    I love how its design looks like lifting moths or butterflies and the one talon. Thank you for the great shots.

    I like how your photos make it seem like you are close enough to coo to the bird, yet I know in reality you stay far back.

  5. Hi: I love your website. I live in England but will be coming to Milwaukee in a few days to visit family for Christmas. Any tips or advice you might have for seeing interesting winter birds, or perhaps getting a glimpse of a snowy owl would be greatly welcomed. My husband and I are keen photographers and also would like to know where the best places are to photograph birds.
