About 9:30 this morning I flushed a Snowy Owl while walking down the ocean side of Sandy Point. The bird flew out over the Harbor in a SE direction. If it relocated in CT, maybe in East Haven or points east.
I was suspicious of an owl when I looked up the beach and saw about 30 crows in one spot on the beach all pointing towards the grassy plover nesting area. Tried to creep up on the area, but it flushed from the grasses about 25 yards in front of me. Very white bird, possibly male
