Paul I have seen Snowy Owls perched in trees locally in CT over the years, though its uncommon.
The other thing that people misidentifying as Smowies is Red-tailed Hawk. Particularly when snow is on the ground, and the reflected sunlight makes their belly look gleaming white.
Please check out her report if possible. (There was also a Snowy in Biddeford, Maine about a week ago).

When I showed her a picture of it in the National Geographic guide she said it looked like what she saw. I was just wondering if a Snowy Owl would perch in a tree however. Since one was seen in Massachusetts lately who knows.
