Romulus is an immature male snowy owl captured by Selena Creed at the Detroit Metro Airport, tagged with her help by Nova Mackentley and Chris Neri from Whitefish Point Bird Observatory, and released in Huron County, MI, on Feb. 26, 2022. He was named for the town of Romulus, MI, where the airport is located. Romulus’ transmitter was paid for by generous donations from the public to Project SNOWstorm.
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.
