The Snowy Owl has made it’s return to the Jersey Shore. ¬†After the long journey from the Arctic, an adult male has made an appearance on the dunes along the coast. After several gulls continued to harass the Snowy, he decided to find a better spot. On the walk back, there were several Long-tailed Ducks surfing the waves.
