(MELROSE, MA) – It weighs just 4 pounds and stands a mere 24” inches tall, yet the snowy owl commands attention with its graceful beauty and awe-inspiring 4’-5’ wingspan. Native to the artic habitats of Alaska, Russia and Greenland, the golden-eyed raptors flocked to Massachusetts airports, fields and beaches in record numbers last winter, generating many photographs and much buzz about their remarkable presence.
On Saturday, November 1, from 5:00 – 7:00 pm, Hunt’s Photo & Video, New England’s largest digital imaging equipment retailer, will host a free Opening Reception for its first Snowy Owl Exhibit, a gallery show of breathtaking wildlife photographs taken during the snowy owl irruption of 2013-2014. The event is open to the public.
The exhibit will feature photographs culled from the widely watched Snowy Owl YouTube video produced by renowned bird photographer Craig Gibson of Winchester and will include images of snowy owls soaring, hunting, diving, and perching in areas as diverse as Cape Cod beaches, urban landscapes and Logan Airport runways. Photographers from across the state will be represented in the show. In addition, Ray Brown, host of Talkin’ Birds Radio Show on WROL, Boston, WCAP, Lowell, and WATD, South Shore, Massachusetts, will be a featured guest, along with Guest Judge Wayne R. Petersen, director of Mass Audubon’s Important Bird Area (IBA) Program. Refreshments from Organic Ocean Sushi in Melrose will be served.
The exhibit will remain on display throughout the month, including during the upcoming 38th Annual Hunt’s Photo & Video Show on November 7 – 9.
Adding to the excitement will be an Online Auction of the exhibit photos during November 1 – 20, 2014. Visit the Auction website to place your bids on these beautiful signed and framed, 16”x20” images. Proceeds from the Auction will benefit the Snowy Owl Project of Mass Audubon, which works to band, track and protect snowy owls.
Hunt’s Photo President Scott Farber says the Snowy Owl Exhibit is a natural extension of the company’s growing relationship with the North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA). A longtime supporter of the organization, Hunt’s has partnered with NANPA and the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge in co-sponsoring photo weekends and tours of wildlife habitats on Plum Island.
“The Snowy Owl Exhibit is a chance for anyone who loves photography or wildlife or both to be amazed and inspired by this impressive collection of wildlife photographs,” says Farber. “We are proud to showcase and support the work of these talented photographers and Mass Audubon’s Snowy Owl Project at Hunt’s.”

Join Mommybites and CareAcademy.co as they walk you through some strategies for good communication between parents and nannies!
Whether it’s your nanny, daycare provider, or the Saturday night babysitter, life can get crazy enough that we forget the importance of good communication with our caregiver.
Open and honest communication between the nanny and parent not only makes for a smoother day, but it is also important for the children’s wellbeing. Honing communication skills makes both the parent’s and nanny’s job easier and paves the way to a true partnership in raising the children.
In this teleclass, we have both a noted nanny and trusted parent consultant, who will provide some strategies for forging a healthy parent-nanny relationship
We will discuss:
How to have a difficult discussion about those really sensitive issues?
The best approaches for communication between parents and nannies
Tools and Tips to make communication easier throughout the day,
An easy to make contract you can use to avoid most issues that arise within a nanny/family relationship
Nannies and parents are welcome to this discussion.

Arnold Arboretum, Hunnewell Building, 125 Arborway, Jamaica Plain, MA Thu., Nov. 6, 2014, 7 – 8:30 p.m.
Author, lawyer, and historian Eric Rutkow digs deep into American history to show how trees were essential to the early years of the republic and indivisible from the country’s rise as both an empire and a civilization. He will share stories set in New England and beyond, in which trees—as symbols of liberty, community, and civilization—are perhaps the loudest silent figures in America’s complicated history. Early presidents, conservationists, politicians, and politics resurface alongside the trees and forests that supported independence and fueled this country’s westward expansion.
