Snowy Owls in Maine

We’ve had Snowy Owls in Maine this winter.

We don’t usually see them in the “lower 48.”  They are more present in Canada.

One was rescued off the end of the airport runway in Portland, fed, and released.

Their wing span is HUGE.

And of course, they are so dramatic.

Best of all, we have some very near Camden.

Friend and internationally recognized, amazing quilter Sarah Ann Smith took at artist trip, camera in hand, this week out to where Snowy Owls had been spotted.

This picture is from her very-good blog:

As her blog story tells, there are about three of these owls wintering right near each other.

I think you can get to Sarah’s blog post with this url.  If not she’s easy to google.  The entry was made on Feb. 4th and has lots of pictures of the owls.

So enjoy Sarah’s blog.  She is extraordinarily generous with her time, help, and talents.  We are so lucky to have her as a fellow member of Coastal Quilters.  And, I am lucky to have her as a friend.

Sarah is primarily an art quilter, but she can make a wonderful bed/lap quilt, too.  Her book and DVD are about machine quilting, of which she is a master.

I wonder if an owl quilt is in her future?

I hope so.
