This snowy owl looks like it needs a trim as its white feathers flop down over its eyes.  The female bird is actually fluffing-up her plumage to protect herself from the chilling wind.  <br />
<br />
Gusts as cold as -12C blew the feathers across the owl's face as she perched on a fuel tanker at a military airbase near Montreal, Canada.  Photographer Réjean Biron, 63, climbed a snow bank to get a clear shot of the owl at Saint-Hubert Air Base.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
