PIC OF THE WEEK: 01/13/14 • PREVIOUS WEEKNEXT WEEKALL 2014 PICS

Bird Pic Of The Week

Snowy Owl

(Bubo scandiacus)

Where: Ocracoke, VNC • Ocracoke Island

Notes: Widespread reports of these magnificent arctic raptors through out the eastern seaboard this winter, prompted me to take a short break from the recent images captured on eighty-five degree days in Florida, to brave the cold and take a chance on an expedition to find one of these rare visitors. I relinquished to the desire when by my friend Robby Sabatini (www.robsabatiniphotography.com) contacted me about taking a chance and going to try and find a recent sighting in North Carolina. The trip down was worrisome with heavy rain and wind. We made it safely to the motel. Upon awakening, we sighted stars in the sky and readied the vehicle for beach travel. Within an hour we had spotted the first owl. It was fairly easy to spot on its high dune perch facing the sun in the morning light. Later another individual was sighted, thanks to Bill Birkemeier (www.inthelens.com) and his wife. They had found another "Snowy" out in the open near the southern point of the beach and kindly gave us a call. We headed that way and captured a few shots of this unusual and strikingly beautiful visitor. It must have fed recently because it had a hint of red on the feathers around its beak; this is a good sign that it is successfully finding food many hundreds of miles form home.
