Yesterday I had a couple of very close encounters with the fabulous Great Gray Owl, when it landed close in front of me, (too close to focus until I took a couple of steps back) or next to me-- on a tripod set up in the field.
So if you aren't tired of GGOW pics yet, I have added few in my flickr, and will probably add some more...
On the way back home from Newport, I checked Horseshoe Pond in Merrimack (Hills Co) and found the three Northern Shovelers still there.
Most of the pond had frozen, and I didn't see any of the many Ring-necked and Wood Ducks, Hoodies and (one) American Wigeon that have been hanging around. Hoping they'll be back after the bad weather.
