Central Park's favorite resident has been spotted again, and this time she's on the hunt for prey.
The rare, female snowy owl was seen this past Saturday night in the park's North Meadow. A birder who runs the Twitter account Manhattan Bird Alert posted a photo of the mostly white owl, saying she had just made a short flight before pouncing down to the ground and extracting a mouse from underneath the snow.
The large, strikingly beautiful predator was first spotted Wednesday morning, the first time a snowy owl has been seen in Central Park since the winter of 1890. So far she's had a red-tailed hawk and a flock of crows try to chase her away, but each time she has held her ground.
