Friday's Foto

I couldn't let this winter pass without paying tribute to the Snowy Owl. In an unprecedented avian event, hundreds of these circumpolar owls have descended upon the eastern United States this winter, presumably in search of food. Many have succumb to starvation, as well as, the expected gauntlet of human traps found within urban environments. An unusual number seemed to have survived around Brooklyn, however, this individual was one of 4 seen this particular day on a landfill.
