Cranberry was tagged Jan. 25, 2014, near Rochester, NY, by Tom McDonald, along with Braddock, and like that owl spent much of the winter moving between land and the offshore ice of Lake Ontario. He was last detected Feb. 15, 2014, off Sodus Bay on Lake Ontario.
Thanks to support from hundreds of people, Project SNOWstorm put GPS transmitters on 22 snowy owls during the winter of 2013-14 to study their ecology and movements while on the wintering grounds. Our work is ongoing, but we remain funded entirely by contributions from individuals and birding groups. Your support will allows us to continue this important research on these beautiful birds. Please donate to this project to make it a success!
