Many years back, while out for a late afternoon hike in Connecticut, two great horned owls flew overhead like ghosts. That was my one encounter with an owl so far. This winter, 2020-2021, we have several Snowy Owls wintering in my home state of New Jersey. I have been on the lookout visiting a variety of locations but have been lucky enough to find one yet. As well, I have been spending a lot of late afternoons around sunset on the hunt for other owls but so far, no luck.
