2 Snowy Owls in Westport/Norwalk

23 11 2008

Thanks to Tina & Peter Green for supplying the great digiscoped photo’s (above). Pretty conclusive proof that they are 2 different Snowy Owls and pehaps both are still in the locality (Mardi Dickinson reported a similar looking Snowy to the first bird on the 21st back at Calf Pasture). The first bird was reported on November 3rd from Calf Pasture Beach in Norwalk and became an overnight celebrity with TV and press coverage, the second bird was found by Tina Green at Compo Beach in Westport on Nov 21st.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today. I’ve enjoyed reading Under Clear Skies, too, and added it to my blogroll. It’s great to have fellow local folks writing about similar subjects.

I saw the Snowy Owl on Friday! Very neat.

Nice work Tina and Luke. It will be interesting to see if we can figure out just how many Snowy Owls visit our state this winter.

Can’t take much credit for this one Nick – Tina found the bird and took the piccies with her husband Peter – they just allowed me to stick them here. I’m sure Greg is keeping a running tally. The bird Tina found in Westport looks pale like the Stratford Bird but I don’t know if it was ever close enough for people to get decent pics/looks?

Hi Luke

Ok so it’s only one but I thought we’d let you know about a Snowy Owl that’s turned up in the UK… Probably not one of yours that did an Ocean hop… Here’s the story anyway:
