Rare Sighting: Snowy Owl Was Spotted In NYC’s Central Park The First Time After 130 Years

On Wednesday, Jan 27, New Yorkers flocked to Central Park to catch a glimpse of a snowy owl that hasn’t been seen for 130 years, as reported by The New York Times.

According to experts, the last time snowy owls were spotted in Central Park was in Winter 1980, when they migrated in an unusually large number toward the South, along the east coast. However, the technology at the time did not allow people to snap photographic proof of the event. Therefore, Wednesday’s phenomenon was so special that many people couldn’t wait to see the feathery creature.

Manhattan Bird Alert, a Twitter Account for bird spotting in New York’s Central Park and Manhattan, posted a video of this rare sight with the caption: “The SNOWY OWL of the Central Park North Meadow was not much bothered by the crows that gathered around it earlier and that have now returned. People are staying behind distant fences and being quiet and respectful.” If you are interested in bird-watching, you shouldn’t skip this clip:

The video capturing the snowy owl played with other crows has earned 82K views. It is liked for over 2K times and receives a number of positive comments.

Some citizens witnessing the sight also shared several pictures and videos of the birds taken by their own.
