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.

Breaking news on the migration of Snowy Owls across North America

Summary Report — Sunday, January 24

Snowy Owls have settled in at scattered but familiar sites in a zone ranging as far south as Tennessee, northward into New Brunswick, and across the Midwest and Canada into Alberta. Despite continuing Snowy Owl sightings from a few neighborhoods in Seattle, and a few records elsewhere in Washington, the Pacific Northwest is not a destination this winter.

Consult the eBird map below for sightings since January 1 (you’ll need an eBird account to see the map). Zoom on the map to see individual records.
