December Photo-observation Winner

Congratulations to Erika Mitchell for winning the December iNaturalist Vermont photo-observation of the month. We chose a huge slate of amazing photo-observations from December for popular vote by iNaturalist Vermont users. Her stunning photo-observation (http://www.inaturalist.org/observations/1131892) of a Tamarack covered in snow, was voted the winner.

Make sure you get outdoors and record the biodiversity around you and submit it to iNaturalist Vermont, a project of the Vermont Atlas of Life, and you could be a winner!

Description

Yesterday we had another short visit from our resident Barred Owl. He's been around a fair amount during the past month or two. This time he perched on the fence for a few minutes, made an unsuccessful dive for food, and then flew off to the woods.
