Dear Friends,
    After several attempts and with the help of Steve K's directions, I finally found a Snowy Owl and managed a few pictures.  The overcast skies didn't lend itself to the sharpness I would have wanted, but I'm happy with the results.  Here are a few Snowy Owl photos from today, taken by digiscope:

I also finally downloaded a couple close-up Short-Eared Owl shots from a few weeks ago at Bradford Farms:
To see more recent photos, or if you have trouble with the links above, go to and click on New Photos, or go to the Owls section.
Take care, and good birding,
