A Snowy Owl was reported at Eastern Neck, so I gave it a try, with mixed results. My trip last year was a major disappointment, as I missed all the good birds.This year was better, but not a major success. The Owl was too far away, and there wasn’t the variety of birds I’d hoped to see.
Still, the hour and a half trip wasn’t a total loss, and I may try again before the season is over.

I found this Easter Bluebird at Possum Point yesterday.
That little white dot is a Snowy Owl. He stayed 300-400 yards away all morning.
