Ahhhh, nice. Looks like a trip soon to go see them. There's also a very good "Mom & Pop"
type of dinner on the way back to Concord from there. They had really good food. I forgot
the name of the place, but it's in my cars GPS. Always a stop for breakfast on the way back. Image

 Re: Post Your Photos of Wildlife While Hiking
My friend is back at Crane Beach this year. :)

This guy looks nervous.

I know owls have great night vision. After finally seeing a snowy, it does appear they do hunt in the daytime. But I still assumed they see best at night. The above photos were from Sunday. I went back yesterday to see if this was going to a regular thing. Went a different route and popped my head over a dune to see it sitting on the next. Maybe I watch too many movies but I had the setting sun directly behind me. I figured it would not be able to see me at all. When I have my PnS at 50X's zoom, it's almost impossible to get a perfectly focused shot. The image stabilization doesn't help that much at that length. Anyhoo, I but my light weight tripod this time. The second I extended the first leg, it heard it, and flew off. I also know they have great hearing but I thought with just my head visible and the sun, it would have dismissed the sound.

If it's the same one from last year, it's behaving slightly different. Last year I'd do a complete circle around it taking shots in plain site. This year, Sunday too, once too close and spotted it flew off towards Plum Island. My go there today (Crane Beach) in the snow. I just need to find my white camo. 8)

I need to visit the coast. Always nice to see those snow owls.
Plus....there's that cool dinner on the way home.

Cool pictures Joe. The ones in NH are back too. If you want to get real close to one the ones at Hampton and Rye harbor seem a lot more accustomed to people than the ones I sat at Plum Island. I'd like to get down to Crane Beach to see this one too (all the beta still the same as what you gave me last year?) just because it seems like a real nice place to hike around the dunes and trails, owl or no owl.

Last Sunday he was at the edge of the dunes and beach. Yesterday, the dunes in the general area as last year. Today, back to the edge. In the video when I pan out you get a good idea.

Nap time.

Pictures didn't come out too bad considering it was snowing sideways.

That's a mighty fine zoom on that camera there. Definitely gives a good look at the area he's in. Long way away though, I'd have to sneak up closer for good pics with my camera. :?

Love the hooty. I've seen some pics of some pretty ginormous poo droppings on other websites, you gotta wonder doesn't that hurt coming out!

Not to be too graphic but let's just say they shoot that stuff a long way! Mostly liquid looking and probably just solidified in a big pile. If it's the actual "pellets" I think they regurgitate those when they're done to get out the bones and fur and whatever, but I those were rounded and more like actual pellets when I've seen them in the woods.

 Re: Post Your Photos of Wildlife While Hiking
Saw this little cutie walking on Crane Beach today. Thought it may have been injured
since there was one there last week that was. Some outfit in NH came and got that
one. I reported it to the rangers but they had already checked it out and said it was quite
healthy.

Great find Joe. Aren't they supposed to be more north?
It's good that all worked out for the little guy.

Very cool. I see them a lot on the rocks off Rye and in Casco Bay but rarely on the mainland beaches. Did see one on Hampton Beach last summer, but that's the only one.

I didn't know seals were around this part of the country. Very cool!

I've never, before this year, seen them at Crane Beach before. But apparently it's quite common for pups to beach themselves where ever they can. As the swimming is still very tiring for them. But this guy was headed for the water and I got exhausted just watching the poor thing inch along. That has to be much harder than swimming for them.
