Flying in for a fall visit to the branch office
Residents of Thorndike Street in East Cambridge had a visitor Sunday that helped highlight how brilliantly fall has come to town. Abby Fechtman was among those taking notice:
What kind of owl? The Audubon Society says there are eight species common in Massachusetts, and this looks most like a barred owl, though it also has a tawny look to it – and the tawny is a Eurasion bird.
Surprisingly, the previous Nice Shot was of an owl as well – a snowy owl spotted in February by Tim Halle on Allston Street, next to Old Morse Park in Cambridgeport.
Beautiful! And nice timing too, because the yellow leaves didn’t last long on the trees this year. Let’s do all we can to increase tree canopy in Cambridge—and bring even more species of feathered friends to town!
Lovely photo of a beautiful bird :-) Wish we had even more of them around to feast on those rats digging up my planting beds :-/
