There was no snow in Syracuse today, so I decided to go to some places that had snow. Along the way, I stopped in Oswego at Breitbeck Park and was blessed to see a snow owl.  I believe this is a young owl as my research indicates that the young have dark spotting which is predominate.  The adult males are almost pure white, while the females retain some dark areas.  This fellow let me get within 20 ft of him/her and I was able to capture a glimpse of the Oswego Lighthouse in the background.
