This beautiful Snowy Owl was perched on a hummock close to an icy farm road just north of Old Deerfield, Massachusetts. It was January 15, 2014. The owl had been there for three weeks, but had never before approached the road this closely. This is an immature bird but I can't tell from the markings whether it is male or female.
