The snowies face so many dangers when they come south, many times you see them perched on hydro poles along the roads. Thanks for the updates, good to hear everyone else is doing okay. Very interesting to read about the difference in behavior between the local birds and the ones from the Arctic that Marge describes during the extreme cold event.

Comment on Farewell, Harwood by Lisa Wickern https://www.projectsnowstorm.org/posts/farewell-harwood/#comment-8137 Wed, 20 Feb 2019 23:10:52 +0000 https://www.projectsnowstorm.org/?p=5037#comment-8137 It is with much sadness that I read of Harwood’s passing. I live just east of his territory on the Minnesota side of the Red River. Due to my 80 mile round trip commute each day I am lucky enough to see the Snowy ones fairly often. There are several along the Hwy 9 corridor and just to the west on Polk County 18. I logged this winter’s first sighting on 12/10/18. So far, I have seen at least 3 separate birds. I will keep enjoying them as long as the cold holds and do my best to observe whatever I can.

These amazing birds face so many challenges – vehicles, turbines, manure, and more. Thanks for all the great work SnowStorm does for the snowies.

So sad about Harwood. I wish we could minimize such death by using road side signs or doing a useful campaign to educate drivers in the areas Snowy owls are seen. Before I heard about ProjectSnowStorm, I didn’t know much about the various habits of snowy owls or other visiting raptors. Thanks to This organization I have learned a lot about these precious birds and appreciate everyone’s hard work.
