On January 3, a beautiful snowy owl made a very unexpected but welcome appearance on a traffic camera that keeps watch over Highway 40 in Montreal, Quebec. Transport Minister Robert Poëti graciously announced the sighting over Twitter and posted photos on Facebook.
(translated from French) An impressive solo was captured in full flight on the morning of 3 January, by the surveillance cameras of the road network on Highway 40, at the height of the Boulevard des Sources in the west of the Island of Montreal. Here’s a couple of shots of this beautiful snowy owl!
