It's A Snowy (Owl) Christmas

This is a very common sight in my part of the world (Saskatchewan, Canada,  very near the US border) right now.  Snowy Owls everywhere.  We normally have these owls around in Winter but this year seems to be an irruption year. 

and closer (looks like a juvenile - most of the birds I saw this past week have been heavily barred).

Look this way, please & thanks
