Snowy Owl Project benefit & Photosharing

On Saturday November 15, 2014 myself (Shawn Carey) and Eric Smith hosted our annual Nature Photographers Photosharing Session with help from Ray MacDonald and Jim Grady at Mass Audubon Bluehills Trailside Museum in Milton as a benefit for Norman Smith and his Snowy Owl Project. All proceeds benefited the Snowy Owl Project.

If you would like to help Norman and the Snowy Owl Project please go the the Mass Audubon web site and click on the link to donate.

Snowy Owls in the News

Some of you may have seen the recent news stories about the senseless slaughter of Snowy Owls at JFK airport. Thankfully, the Port Authority has agreed to work with the Department of Environmental Conservation to relocate Snowy Owls captured at New York and New Jersey airports.

NBC’s Today Show covered this story and used some of my footage in their broadcast. You can view my complete footage of Norman Smith releasing a Snowy Owl on my Zenfolio page.

And here’s a video recorded last Sunday on a very overcast day just before sunset while sitting in my vehicle. The owl sat on the ledge looking towards the ocean for almost one hour before taking flight. Enjoy.
