Duxbury was an immature female snowy owl trapped Jan. 29, 2014, at Logan Airport by Norman Smith, and relocated to Duxbury Beach, MA, north of Plymouth. Over the next month she moved back north to Revere, just outside Boston, and was last detected there on Feb. 28, 2014.
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!
