Juvenile Snowy Owl
When I got to the cape there were two other cars in the lot and I recognized one as belonging to Margie. I thought she and her son, Paul, might be down by the "look out." I got out of the car and headed down the path just below the lot. I got about half way between the lot to the water when I noticed something sitting on a rock. Ooooo, I thought, "maybe a Peregrine Falcon." I slowed my pace and began to move with more respect for the bird.
We went separate ways. They walked the path that I just left and I walked up the east face toward the light houses. We met up again in the parking lot and neither of us had seen the owl on this jaunt.
Could there be two owls out there? I don't usually post my new pictures right away as it takes me time to sort through things, but I decided to upload these images for a point of comparison if anyone else may see an owl at the Cape. Could there be more than one owl out there? Short of seeing two together, only pictures will tell.
