A Resting Snowy Owl

If I had been looking the other way ~
I would have missed this beautiful bird.  
How lucky am I!

Dew Drops on Rose-of-Sharon

After a rainy night, the humid morning held the dewdrops on the petals of our Rose-of-Sharon just long enough for a few photos.

The Pink House

The Pink House is located on Plum Island Turnpike in Newbury, MA and is one of my favorite houses.  It is also a favorite spot for Snowy Owls to rest on cold winter days - many Snowy Owls have been seen sitting on the rooftop of The Pink House over the years!  One of these days, I will have my camera with me to capture this scene but until then I will enjoy the rustic beauty of The Pink House each time I travel to and from Parker River National Wildlife Refuge.

Owling at Cumberland Farms

Cumberland Farms (or Cumbies) is located south of Boston and is a wonderful place to bird any time of year.  This afternoon a few friends and I went to look for Short-eared owls.  We saw at least six owls hunting the fields as well as Northern harriers, geese, ducks, and a beautiful sunset!  Cumbies is a nominated Important Bird Area.
