As the unprecedented irruption of Snowy Owls continues in the eastern U.S. it has been estimated there are currently close to 30 of them in New Jersey. I spent most of a day searching areas where they had been reported without any success. I had given up & I was driving home when I spotted this one on a street light on the side of the road. Luckily I was able to pull over without causing an accident & I happily took shots of my third Snowy of the season. Taken with a Canon EOS 7D & a Canon 400mm f/5.6.

    Not sure about Delaware but in NJ there are 2 being seen at Edwin B. Forsythe NWR in Oceanville just about daily. Good luck if you go.
