    Can anyone tell me what this bird is. It is from Northern Nebraska and not on iBird. I also tried internet, but am drawing a blank.

    I'm back from Boundary Bay, British Columbia, and spent the entire day today going through my photos. I took about 3,000 pictures over the three days, and posted less than 1% of them here:
    http://www.huyerperspectives.com/Nat...7546726_HKDXv5

    And this one is probably my favourite of the bunch:


    I used my 1DX with the 500 f/4 II and 1.4 TC III for every shot (except the sunrise photo at the end). Lighting conditions were all over the place, requiring constant attention on the settings... it definitely added to the fun. I went to Boundary Bay to see the snowy owls, but the short-eared owls just about stole the show. They are active all day long and are a huge challenge to shoot. The camera does not like to focus on a brown bird over a brown background. But when it does lock in, the results are fantastic.

    I was very lucky with the weather. It rains here an awful lot, but I managed to pick a perfect window of sunshine.

    The snowy owls will probably be at Boundary Bay for another month or so. Next year they might not be back at all, as last year's population irruption continues to fade. However these cycles repeat themselves every half-dozen years or so, and you can be sure I will be right back there for the next one.

    Thanks for viewing!

    Love the short-ears in flight (#9, #22, and #24).

    Thanks! By the way, on the web album there is a button called "Map This" near the top of the page, which shows the locations where the photos were taken.
