Yesterday we got a few beautiful inches of snow here in SE MA, so I went down to Duxbury in the late afternoon. I still didn't find any owls, but the recent snowfall combined with some beautiful late day skies, provided me an opportunity to make some landscapes images.
Snowy Owls reside in the desolate land in the Arctic throughout most of the year, but in the Winter they travel South to live in wide open spaces that remind them of their home in the Arctic Tundra. The owls that reside in Duxbury Beach typically fly to Logan Airport in Boston each year, and are caught and relocated to places such as Duxbury Beach, where it is a safer place for both the owls and the air traffic at the airport.
This image gives you a good example of the wide open spaces near Duxbury Beach that remind the owls of their "home" environment.
