It’s that time of year when snowy owls make their appearance on the Island and the South Fork, where these pictures were taken on Monday.

One of the largest owls, the snowy summers north of the Arctic Circle before flying south for cooler climes. The owls pictured in these photos were spotted at Cupsogue Beach County Park in Westhampton Dunes.
