Snowy Owl sentinel

Posted on Nov 13, 2014

This Snowy Owl (Bubo scandiacus) sentinel was photographed by RTPI Affiliate Sean Graesser during last year’s irruption. There have been more Snowy Owls appearing daily in the Midwest and the Northeast. One was seen yesterday not too far from RTPI in Erie, Pennsylvania. None of our staff or colleagues have had the chance to see one yet this fall but we will let you know and hopefully show you one soon if we do. Have you spotted a Snowy this autumn?!
