Snowy Owl and Great Blue Heron

snowy owlSue Lewis, one of our Berkshire Bioblitz bird experts, and her team reported seeing a snowy owl at Silver Lake in Pittsfield on December 15, 2013. It was sitting on one of the solar panels WMECO installed. The weather here has been until today, almost balmy. Yesterday the skies were blue and the sun was warm.
