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 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).
