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 – 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 1The 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!
