Beautiful photos as always. :) The link is a really nice website. They have so much information about the animals. Thank you for sharing. It must have been exciting to see an Owl released. Had it been injured?

Lovely photos. What an interesting way to spend time when you go into town.

You asked after snow mold. We only ever encountered it since moving here and didn't know what it was the first time we saw it. Here is a site that explains a bit about what it is:
