Britton is an immature female snowy owl, trapped at the Frederick Douglass Greater Rochester International Airport by Tom McDonald and his team, fitted with a transmitter and released 45 miles (70 km) southwest of the airport on Feb. 12, 2022. She is named for historic Britton Field, an early 20th century military airfield that became the Douglass Greater Rochester airport. Britton’s transmitter was paid for by generous donations from the public to Project SNOWstorm.

We are raising $15,000 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.
