Of Interest

In his nightly NYS Coronavirus Update, Governor Andrew Cuomo shared this "Deep Breath Moment":
Central Park received an unexpected visitor today--a snowy owl. Spotting this species of owl is an extremely rare event. Snowy owls are common in the Arctic tundra, but not in New York City, and so bird-watchers marveled at the unusual sighting. Snowy owls migrate south in winter. Avid birder David Barrett speculated that this particular snowy owl mistook the park's baseball field for a sand beach
