A Snowy Owl, an infrequent visitor to Maine, was seen on the summit of Mount A Friday, November 22nd throughout the day. They like open fields, shrubland and tundra for hunting. It perched atop the viewing platform for a few hours and was also seen on the western portion of the open summit. It is presumed to be a juvenile male and there have been other reports of snowy sightings in the northeast on the same day. The Mount A webcam was a big hit and was mentioned on a Maine eBIRD post that also explains reasons for a surge in sightings south of their traditional range. A good tip: "Most invasions involve young birds at the southern limits, and these are often stressed individuals. So please respect them and observe at a distance." Easy to do when they pose in front of a web cam!! Photo Credit: Denise Johnsonh
