OWLS & OTHERS FROM THE NORTH SHORE OF MASSACHUSETTS AND ELSEWHERE ACROSS THE USA

I'm an avid birder and nature photographer wishing to share some of my sightings & images taken while out in the "wilds" of Cape Ann and surrounding New England countryside. More images can be found on my web site at New England Birds Plus Enjoy, Phil Brown

Buntings & Sparrows - Jan. 17, 2011

A stop at Good Harbor Beach in Gloucester this morning found several Horned Lark and a lone Snow Bunting foraging near the road. The Snow Bunting posed for the image below.


Later in the afternoon I came across a Savannah Sparrow working the wrack line at the boat ramp on the Salisbury Beach State Reservation. A Rough-legged Hawk paused briefly in the Pine Grove but not long enough for photos.



I ended the day with one of the Ipswich Screech Owls. A short video of the owl checking out it's surroundings prior to heading out for the night can be seen at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6oSR5skBYYU
