Browsing Bliss Awaits You

It appears you're using Internet Explorer or an early version of Edge, which is a bit like watching a black-and-white TV with "rabbit ears." You're missing symmetry, joy and actual knowledge — not only here on my website but across the internet. I suggest you upgrade to Chrome or Firefox. You’ll discover a lot more nature, maybe even actual rabbit ears.

The Snowy Owl Scoop

Breaking news on the migration of Snowy Owls across North America

Summary Report – Saturday, October 12, 2019

The Snowy Owl Scoop resumes in earnest once owls begin to move south and turn up in southern Canada and the U.S. This is typically mid November (even though the incursion began early last year). The Map link below includes Snowy Owls reported to eBird since September 1. The Sightings link 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 eBird map (none as of 12 Oct).
