South Jetty Snowy Owl

December 28, 2012  •  5 Comments

The weather was not cooperative during our visit to Fort Stevens State Park today, but the Snowy Owls were!  We found three of them in an opening behind the stand of shore pine north of the parking lot at the south jetty.  We also saw a fourth owl perched, a long way away in the dunes near the beach.  Mid-calf-high waterproof boots are necessary if you want to keep your feet dry.

Below are two pictures of the area that we snapped as we were leaving. They don't do justice to the raining conditions.

Thanks! It was so heavily overcast and raining that I just kept my fingers crossed that the image would turn out.
