PHOTOS: Reader Karen Johnson Spotted the Snowy Owl in Middletown
Reader Karen Johnson submitted photos of the Snowy Owl she took on Wednesday afternoon in Middletown
Reader Karen Johnson took these pictures of the Snowy Owl on Wednesday, around 2:30 p.m.
She said she took the "Island Rocks" trail straight to the water, and took a left until the viewing dock. The owl was on the top of the largest rock, left side of the set, in a set of rocks furthest from the shore.
"She was quite content just looking around – lots of ducks, etc," explained Johnson in an email. "It was really mild out so I don’t think she had any intention of giving up her spot."

There have been several sightings of the Snowy Owl in Middletown since Thanksgiving. Away from it's natural home of the Arctic, it is believed to be traveling south in search of food.
