Snowy Owls

My mission:   Find a Snowy Owl to show my friend Deb.

1st stop - Salisbury Beach State Reservation
Result - #1 Snowy Owl in marsh (distant - no photo)
             #2 Snowy Owl in dunes (distant - photos follow)

View from the parking lot 
(No dunes were harmed in the taking of this photo.)

The dunes are way more important than the photos, people!  Get out of there!


2nd stop - Parker River National Wildlife Refuge
Report - #3 Snowy Owl in dunes (distant)
             #4 Snowy Owl released by Mass Audubon after capture at Logan Airport
             (We couldn't get much closer without holding it ourselves!)

We had a great day and enjoyed the warm temperatures (53 degrees) and bright sunshine!  It was so nice to have a friend along!
