Thanks to support from hundreds of people, we have been able to put GPS transmitters on several Snowy Owls and make these maps. We have reached our initial funding goal, but additional funding allows us to do more important research on these beautiful birds. Please donate to this project to make it a success!
This young male was banded in Erie, PA on Sunday, January 19th at the Erie International Airport in Erie, PA and released at the nearby Presque Isle State Park. The bay and much of the closer water to the peninsula are frozen over and other Snowy Owls have been seen wandering out on the ice to get close to the rafts of ducks.
Project SNOWstorm would like to specifically thank the Pennsylvania Society for Ornithology for sponsoring the transmitter worn by Erie.
