SNOWY OWL!!!

Today, Christmas Day, I visited Ponquogue Beach in Hampton Bays to try and find an owl. I have been visiting this site for years in hope of finding one, but these trips were never successful. After walking along the beach for only a short time I located my lifer Snowy Owl in the dunes, an individual with intermediate barring, so either an immature male or an adult female. Despite the many surfers and people walking dogs on the beach, the owl seemed calm and unbothered.

It was also an opportunity for me to test my new 400mm Canon lens, which took some pretty good pictures of the owl.
