Favret (“fav-RAY”) is an adult female tagged Feb. 27, 2017, by Tom McDonald near Favret Road on Cape Vincent, New York — a high, largely treeless area of farmland that is traditionally an important wintering area for snowy owls at the eastern end of Lake Ontario. After spending the winter in this area, she migrated north and was last detected April 5, 2017, just southeast of James Bay.

Favret’s transmitter was paid for by generous contributions from the public through Indiegogo or a direct donation via the Ned Smith Center for Nature and Art, our institutional home.
