Above, a Snowy flies near dusk on Friday. Below, you can see both owls in the same frame.
Both photos been enlarged greatly; they were taken with a 400-millimeter lens.
The word is that heavy snows have severely reduced the number of lemmings on their home turf in the Arctic, and the Snowy Owls and moved south in search of prey on which to feed.
That's one of the many reasons that it is important to stay away from these highly stressed and sometimes starving owls.
Snowy Owls have also been seen elsewhere in New Jersey and in neighboring states in recent days.
