~~ a Winter quindecim
With home in the Arctic Tundra and rarely seen in Central Park, midst the Polar Vortex split 'assundra she traveled in its wild winter spark. Paying a visit to New York City, a crowd gathered -- birdwatchers galore trekked the paths -- hoping for a "look-see," a prized view on the Atmospheric River. Several feet of snow beneath its flow leaving the normal arctic path begging as the snowy owl steals the show with the "Arctic River" now sunning south of the tundra and the North Pole-- 'twixt the Polar Vortex, no longer whole, with wild winter patterns on the southern shoal.
According to Paul Sweet, an ornithologist at the American Museum of Natural History, the most recent record of a Snowy Owl seen in Central Park was December 1890. To find out more, follow him @pablo_dulce on twitter.
