I enjoy watching the predators hunt.  Always searching!

Activity on the ice today, snowy owl at noon, with wonderful closeups, thanks to the cam ops!  Could be an adult female or an immature male according to the Audubon ID site.  Which did our info say is most likely to come "south" in the winter?

Two coyotes later in the afternoon, frolicking on the ice, sitting together.  A mated pair? Litter mates? Just chums?

Looks like a marvelous day.  Great screen captures.

Snowy owl still hanging around the camera. Very Cool. Not the greatest capture, but it was nice to watch the live camera views

What species of owl is in the pic attached?   The chat has a link posted that says it is a snowy owl.  But all the pictures on All About Birds has the snowy owl with a white face at all ages and sexes, and this one has dark feathers on the face and kind of a heart-shaped face pattern.   What say you experts?
