Across North America, the Snowy Owls have been popping up nearly everywhere across the Northernmost part of the US.

Maggie Fimia (former KC Councilmember and Dep Mayor of Shoreline) spotted this owl near her home.
She said there was a big commotion of crows in her backyard. And there was the owl in the tree. He stayed there all day until dusk and then flew off. What a thrill!

The Cornell Lab  of Ornitholgy has a great site for information on all North American Birds, and particularly on this magnificent bird.

Watch this cool video of the Snowy Owls story on Youtube.

The Journeys of Snowy Owls

Snowy Owls are nomads; their arctic journeys can span continents as they search for food. This winter, bird watchers are reporting an exceptional influx of Snowy Owls from coast to coast in the Lower 48 states.
