Don Torino, one of the leaders of our twice-monthly walks with Bergen County Audubon Society, has a new column about Snowy Owls in the Garden State and the prospects of seeing one or more this winter.
Writes Don: "It is hard to forget the winter of 2009 when two Snowy Owls spent a few months in the Meadowlands. People from all walks of life, expert birders and folks who never even saw a Cardinal unless it was on the side of a football helmet, lined the roadsides just to get a glimpse of these amazing creatures."
