At least two are still on Amherst Island, Ontario and another was in Bath.

Field mice are extremely plentiful this year.

Comment on The End? by Tammy https://www.projectsnowstorm.org/posts/the-end/#comment-2165 Sun, 19 Aug 2018 01:07:17 +0000 https://www.projectsnowstorm.org/?p=4424#comment-2165 Hi Scott, I am very concerned and confused, maybe you can help. There is a Snowy Owl in Newburyport, MA and from what I have seen on FB he or she never headed home. Do you have any idea why this Snowy Owl would still be here in August?? The temps have been in the 90’s and we have had very high humidity. The pictures my friends are posting look terrible. Norman is keeping an eye on the snowy but I think he should capture him as he looks very sick…droopy eyes, very ratty, broken feathers and he looks so sad. What is going on and what do we do? Thank you, Tammy

It’s very exciting to get updates of the whereabouts of the snowies at this time of year.

So sad to hear Erie is gone :( but as you say, all he has taught us remains.

Some are birds that are compromised in some way — injured or ill — bnut as with any population of migratory animals, some were just born with a hiccup in their genetic programming that doesn’t drive them north like most of the rest.
