While looking for early migrants in “downtown” Biddeford Pool, I looked across the channel . . . at the stately homes just a few yards away as the crow flies (but 20 minutes away by car). There, sitting on the edge of a freshly mowed lawn and bunches of spring daffodils was a Snowy Owl.
Biddeford Pool is a common wintering spot for Snowies . . . but we usually see them sitting on two feet of snow … not on a freshly mowed lawn in front of spring flowers.
This guy (actually it’s a female) will be heading to the arctic soon.
