“Last winter, my wife and I stopped at the Trenton airport after reading about several snowy owl sightings in that location. Luck was with us. We spotted one snowy owl sitting atop a utility pole almost right away. After several minutes of camera work the owl flew down to some ground cover while the shutter was still in operation. Suddenly it gave a big yawn as if to say “enough of this you’re boring me” and flew away out of our sight.” —Photo by NRCM member David Small of Old Town, Maine
Note: This winter there have been more Snowy Owl sightings in Maine. Have you seen one? If so, please send us your photos (firstname.lastname@example.org). David and others shared with us their Snowy Owl photos from the winter of 2013-2014 and we created a gallery of pictures from around the state. View the gallery here.
