"During the 2011-2012 winter, there were two adult Snowy Owls and two owlets that were found across long island. The Park Officials I spoke with say that this male has been wintering here for 20 years. The adult female could be found on the dunes at Jamaica Bay, Queens while the younger owls were found at the beaches of Breezy Point and Hampton Bays. This was an awesome sighting just miles from New York City.
Dere used a Canon EOS 1D Mark IV, Canon EF 600mm f/4L IS lens,a cable release, Gitzo tripod and a Wimberly head.
