Snowy Owls


The Northern U.S. is in the middle of a considerable Snowy Owl invasion (they are appearing in more southerly locations across the U.S. as well). Read more about the sightings and what may be causing them in this article written by our eBird team:

    Just beautiful. I would like to see one in my backyard too. I did see a Falcon one day and that was pretty exciting!

      We have a resident Cooper’s hawk, who is not so welcome around the bird feeder, but has really knocked down the squirrel and chipmunk population, so I am grateful for that. A few winter’s ago, I happened to glance outside one night and saw a barred owl in the tree watching the ground below the bird feeder trying to snag a vole. Everybody’s gotta eat!
