Snowy Owl Yawn

Photo by Jeffrey Foltice

I found this Snowy Owl today in Muskegon County, Michigan. He seemed to be a bit tired after being out in the sunshine all day as I caught him yawning.

    Where do you find all these birds?

  7. scillagrace says :

    Oh, you got one! I’ve been reading about their appearances in large numbers here in the Midwest because of the lemming shortage up north. I hope I see one!

    Maybe it says something about me, but to me, he looks like he’s laughing at a really good joke. I love it.

      lol, thanks. If I didn’t see him closing his eyes and starting to nod off, then wake up with a yawn a few moments later, I might have thought of him laughing instead of yawning too, lol.
