Montréal is an adult female snowy owl, originally banded Nov. 8, 2018, at Montréal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport by Guy Fitzgerald of Union Québécoise de Réhabilitation des Oiseaux de Proie, color-marked and relocated for her safety. She was retrapped at the airport Nov. 25, 2019 by Falcon Environmental Services, tagged by Rebecca McCabe with a CTT hybrid GSM/Argos transmitter, and again relocated away from the airport. Sadly, she was found dead Dec. 3, 2019, along a highway in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, QC. Her transmitter was funded by generous donations from the public.
We are raising $20,000 this year for Snowy Owl research.
We're continuing our work this winter, learning more about these majestic Arctic predators, but we can't do it without your help. Your donation to Project SNOWstorm is tax-deductible through our institutional home, the Ned Smith Center for Nature and Art in Pennsylvania, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.
