Snowy Owl

Mikell Herrick

Webster, United States

Artist's Description

The winter of 2014 will be remembered by many bird watchers and photographers in the Great Lakes are and Northeastern United States as the season when the Snowy Owls came to visit. This juvenile males was one of dozens spotted in our area around Rochester, NY as he sat on a telephone pole near a farmer’s field. This is much farther south than they usually migrate to in the winter but an abundance of lemmings in their arctic habitat meant an a baby boom of young owls last season. As winter arrived, the adults chased many of them off and so some of us were happy to see our very first sighting of these magnificent birds of prey.
