Snowy Owl Irruption
Posted by Butch Lombardi
Snowys are appearing up and down the coast and even in Providence and other towns-not their normal habitat. They are here for a reason-lack of food in the Arctic. Many of them are showing up on the verge of starvation. Several dead Snowy Owls have been found and the cause of death was starvation. Please give the birds some space to hunt and rest. Chasing them up and down the shore just causes them to expend energy they may not have.
