The Snowy Owl Scoop
Breaking news on the migration of Snowy Owls across North America
Summary Report – Friday, May 10
With spring migration now well underway, birders are moving on to warblers, tanagers sparrows and other avian adventures. So today I suspend the Snowy Owl Scoop until October. This isn’t to say that you won’t continue to find Snowy Owls lingering in the U.S. and southern Canada. The Map link below now includes sightings only since May 1. The Sightings link below features a list of Snowy Owl reports during the past seven days in the lower 48, plus “unconfirmed” reports that aren’t yet showing up on the map.
Thanks to everyone who visited the Snowy Owl Scoop this past winter. See you when the owls fly in autumn!
