A Snowy Owl at Duxbury Beach, Duxbury, Massachusetts, USA


Plymouth Light, also known as Gurnet Light, is at the Plymouth end of Duxbury Beach and was home of America’s first woman lighthouse keeper. It is now the  home of the country’s oldest freestanding wood lighthouse. It is less than 4 miles northeast of Plymouth Rock.

The narrow peninsula of Duxbury Beach stretches toward the horizon.

The sighting of a Snowy Owl along this narrow spit of land on the bay side attracted birders and nature photographers from far and wide. The white speck in the middle is the Snowy Owl.

The salt marsh grasses glow with their fall colors.

The channels widen on the incoming tide.

And this is what the Snowy Owl could have looked like if I had a "fancy" camera instead of a "point-and-shoot."  Above photo courtesy of:  Amy Davies, founder and leader of Plymouth Digital Photographers Club.
