    Gallery: Snowy owls at the Jersey Shore

    In November, the majestic snowy owls returned to New Jersey, and photographers have not stopped snapping images.

    As more of the birds of prey arrived from the Arctic region in December, so did the photos. 

    Enjoy the gallery, and if you do head to Island Beach State Park to catch a glimpse, a park official says to stay off the sensitive dunes.
