Good evening all...

I was reading some articles about snowy owls being seen around PA & NJ last year. I was wondering if there have been any sightings around this area yet this year? The wife and I are hoping there may be one worth tracking down in the next few weeks...


Cheers
Nick

Last year was an irruptive winter for them, so they were being found in the lower 48 with much more regularity than usual. Not likely to be as many around this winter, but who knows! GA actually already had one, so anything is possible!

I just saw this article on Snowy Owls coming 'south' again this year, albeit to Delta BC (Canada) at latitude 49'. They suggest this may be another 'irruptive' year.

you could use ebird.org to pull data from last winter to give you a good idea not only of when they where here but also the rate at which they came south.

I've heard rumors of Snowies living at one of the PA airports... I think it was the Phili Airport.... not sure how to access them though.
