Snowy Owl Update No. 3

by Bryan on December 13th, 2011

The arctic ghosts have been a bit more predictable here in Vermont during the past few days. New sightings include Snowy Owls that stayed put for a day or more. Debbie Lazar sends photos of a Snowy Owl on the New England Youth Theatre building’s chimney at 100 Flat Street in Brattleboro on December 11. I like Debbie’s photo below from a distance because it gives you a sense of your search-image when you’re out looking for these birds.

Another Snowy at Button Island was visible with a scope from around Button Bay State Park in Ferrisburg. It was last seen on December 10, when Ian Worley reported: “It has been in a tree at the north end of the island and on a rock on the shore beneath the tree. It can be seen from the fishing access parking lot area, but for better looks walk down to the hub of the park and view from the overlook or somewhere on the shore.” Note that you can walk into state parks while they’re closed for the winter, but don’t block the gates when you park.

Finally, I also have a report from December 9, as of yet unconfirmed, from Taylor Hill Road and Rte 14, in the town of Brookfield.

You can find all my Snowy Owl blog posts here. Onward!

  1. Ooops. Thanks, Heidi. But let’s hope that owl returns!

    Yikes! That’s the building NEXT TO the New England Youth Theater. The real NEYT is a very attractive and welcoming building. They’re doing great things there and we’re very proud of them.

    However, the owl photo is none-the-less spectacular.
