The Snowy Owl on Jones Beach Island

 Last Sunday in the wind and the rain we went out to Jones Beach Park to see the snowy owl. Driving out over the causeway we spotted various houses on stilts on 'islands'- really, hardly islands- it looked like extensive salt marsh.

We had to walk quite a bit to find the owl. She was sitting on a hummock with her back to the ocean oblivious to the weather. She seemed to be dozing. No one else was there, just us and the owl.
