Snowy Owl Encounters in Essex County

We hit the jackpot this week in our travels looking for wildlife. We found 2 snowy owls in separate locations here in Essex County on a bright sunny (though cold and windy) day just before the predicted snow storm. You will notice one of them was in the distance, but we had him all to ourselves, a minor miracle with so many seeking a chance to view them. The other had a fair amount of company and attention but seemed fairly tolerant.

Nor’easter winter storm: snow and rain blowing, sideways, ski goggles worthy #GloucesterMA

LIVE – few winter storm scenes (photos and video clips) 12/17/2020 7am Gloucester, Mass

Winter white out storm: snow, rain and wind– gusting big & horizontal which means snow accumulation tallies will drift here. Plows have been out for various first passes.

Storm Freezing up camera

not molasses crinkles, yet:

What’s in a name? This Dec. 17, 2020 winter storm is called Bailey (which is nice timing wise with George Bailey It’s A Wonderful Life), and winter storm Gail.

Stay safe. We’ll see what happens after 1pm.
