Blogging from A-Z • B

BIRDING

It's no secret on my blog, that I have been obsessed with snowy owls when I learned of the irruption that brought so many, so close!

I know they'll be migrating back to the arctic soon so I recently took (yet another) trip over to Plum Island and Salisbury State Park to see if I could catch a few...I was not disappointed!!

This guy was far away, but wow - pure white - must be a male....

This was on a lamp post in a parking lot near a salt march.  This one sat there forever!

What a funny face!! And look at that talon! 

....I mean really...look at those talons....this is the same bird as in the above pic.  I swear he was showing off, flying back and forth along the bridge I found him on.

Same owl!!

I was also treated to this wonderful great blue heron...


And this super colorful turkey!

  6. Hi Amy,
    I have enjoyed the pictures of the Snowy Owls over the past few months. These are some really great shots of the owls. The Great Blue Heron is beautiful and the Turkey is so pretty I did not realize their colors were so pretty.
