There was a beautiful one who made North Smithfield it’s stop over for a few days. Magnificent creatures

Thank you! I'm new to reddit so wasn't familiar with that group until now.

I caught a few photos of one at Sachuest last year. This picture is amazing because of that purple background!

Excellent, yes I was so fortunate to have a colorful morning for this experience πŸ˜€ thanks

I was there and saw it, too, but I couldn't get through the crowds of photographers to take a picture 😁


Jesse_Coker OP t1_jc62tvf wrote

Actually I was the only photographer present that morning!

There was a crowd when I was there, too. I was there accidentally just to walk!

Same here. Went for a walk and saw the owl out on a rocky promontory, very dramatic, and about twenty people with the largest telephoto lenses I've ever seen at various sites along the shore to capture it. It looked like a presidential press op. My little phone camera zoom was only able to turn the owl into a slightly larger white blob.

Was it on Aquidneck Island? We have a few.

The general rule of thumb with protected wildlife, like Snowy Owls, is to not ask or give away any locations. Even the general vicinity. Especially on a public forum. That way the wrong people don't show up and stress the animal out.

What in the world is a snowy owl doing in RI? That’s incredible


Jesse_Coker OP t1_jc631dv wrote

It's part of their migratory pattern, they are often sighted around select areas during the winter around here. Thank you 😁


Ryv0n t1_jcq2g9w wrote

Wow I’ve never seen them around. Can you name a few spots where they can be seen?


Jesse_Coker OP t1_jcqcdc9 wrote

Generally it's not good form to disclose specific locations, but I've heard that they have been seen from North Kingstown to Block Island, Newport to Narragansett, and I'm sure elsewhere in the area. Good luck!


Ryv0n t1_jcqdymk wrote

I understand, thank you still!


OceanGrownPharms t1_jc6p8vg wrote

Wow! What a great picture. I still need one for my life list 😁

What’s your camera setup? My wife recently got into wildlife photography & your photo looks amazing!


Jesse_Coker OP t1_jc6rvzd wrote

Thank you! I shoot with a Fujifilm GFX 100s, and for this image I used a 250mm lens with 1.4x teleconverter.

An owl has three eyelids: one for blinking, one for sleeping, and one for keeping the eye clean and healthy!
