_MG_0274 Watching Birders

The minute you put the camera on the owl - You annouce to everyone on the beach that you found the owl!

Within ten minutes I had ten birders, photographers and all were pointing at the snowy owl. There was enough optics on the beach to warrant a Brinks Security Team!!

The owl tolerated the crowd well, with a turn or a facial view and finally moved back behind the pile of grasses.
