Bird news

It’s hard to resist sharing a photo of snowy owls, those beautiful birds that have appeared on the North Shore this winter in large numbers.

Thanks to reader Sarah Rydgren for sharing this photo taken a few days ago on Winter Island.

Chess, anyone?

Salem Parks and Recreation will hold its annual youth chess tournament Saturday at 9 a.m. at the Winter Island function hall. It’s for kids in grades K-5.

Not to be outdone, the Salem Witch Trials Cribbage Tournament will be held tomorrow from 1 to 3 p.m. at Winter Island. This competition is for all ages.
