>> Hi guys,
>> Happy New Year. I'm sending this just to you guys; not to the whole CT list.
>> Linda & I went out birding locally for an hour or so. From Short Beach at 9:30 in awful backlight I spotted a Snowy Owl on the bluff at Stratford Point. We went there and had superb views of it. Some gulls started dive-bombing it, causing it to fly down to the dark rocks below along the water's edge. We retreated.
>> Linda was especially thrilled (since she missed the one there Nov. 30.).
>> Actually I think it may be the same bird, based on its barring pattern. I'll have to compare photos when I have time.
