Savage’s Ditch Snowy Owl

December 30, 2008

I received an e-mail from Michael O’Brien today that contained the following photos of a snowy owl. He saw the bird at  the Savage’s ditch dune crossing north of the Indian River inlet, on his way home from participating in his home state of Maryland’s CBCs.

I am delighted we can add this bird as a count week species for the Rehoboth CBC. Which by the way had a lincoln’s sparrow, brown pelican and the black bellied whistling duck at silver lake along with all the regular suspects for a final total of of 136 species.  I will be going after the bird in the morning…wish me luck.

  1. Wow, what a beautiful bird! Now I’m tempted to go down there myself and see if he’s still hanging around! 😉
