PEREGRINE VS. SNOWY OWL Last week, as we arrived to check on the Snowy Owl, a Peregrine Falcon arrived and landed on a utility pole. We grabbed a camera and started taking pictures. It flew off and headed toward the field where the Snowy Owl stood in the distance. The Peregrine wheeled and dropped, then zipped past the owl's head. It was close enough to get the owl to move — and reveal that it had been eating a rabbit.
