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, January 19

The Snowy incursion continues, with regular sightings across New England, New York, Quebec, Ontario, the upper Midwest and central Canadian provinces. This distribution has remained largely unchanged since Snowy Owls began showing up in early October, with no recent confirmed sightings south of Maryland and northern Illinois, and very few owls in the Pacific Northwest.

Find your owls on The Map link below (note the sighting date when you click any map marker). 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 map.

This winter’s first major snowstorm is about to hit the core range of this winter’s Snowy Owl incursion. More than anything, it may make owls harder to locate once the storm passes. Watch this spot for updates.
