From the Friends of Hammonasset and the Connecticut Fish and Wildlife Division of the state Department of Energy & Environmental Control: 

OBSERVE SNOWY OWLS FROM A DISTANCE AND DO NOT APPROACH THEM.

Please share this message and help spread the word.

The presence of a significant number of snowy owls along the CT coastline is generating a lot of interest from those who want to see them and also possibly get a photo.

It is important to remember that these owls are far from their Arctic homes and are likely stressed and hungry. They need to find adequate food to sustain themselves, and excessive disturbance may prevent them from doing so. We have already received reports of emaciated snowy owls, as well as one found dead, likely from starvation, in Waterford.
