Snowy Owl - Island Beach
Got very lucky this Sunday (Dec 10, 2017) to catch a glimpse of the first snowy owl to be tagged in the garden state (New Jersey). It was nicknamed "Island Beach", so this is no ordinary owl, but a snowy owl that made history in the state.
These snowy owls migrate from northern provinces of Canada and find refuge at various landscapes in warmer temperature where they have a constant supply of food. As the temperature decreases here, chances are these will move further south in another week or so.
Enjoy the picture.
