Screech Owl moulting

1290 views Nature Lover August 9, 2020 Ottawa, ON Date shot: August 9, 2020

Many birds including owls undergo a moult of their feathers during the summer months. Basically a moult is when they lose the older feathers which is then replaced with new feathers that grow in its place. A couple of years ago, a snowy owl spent the summer here in Ottawa and I was fortunate to see the snowy owl go thru its moult as well.
