On Dec. 8, 2015, SNOWstorm collaborator (and longtime snowy owl researcher) Tom McDonald of Rochester, NY, caught this adult female on Point Peninsula at the eastern end of Lake Ontario, just a few miles from the New York-Canadian border. Flanders was the first owl of the season and also the first to carry one of Cellular Tracking Technologies’ new 3G transmitters, which (along with a number of other improvements) was significantly more energy efficient than the older models. She spent the winter of 2015-16 on Amherst Island in Lake Ontario, a famous location for snowy owls.

Flanders’ transmitter was funded by contributions from the public. Please consider your own financial support via our Indiegogo fund raiser.
