Though temperatures are to dip back below freezing over the next 24 hours, the balmy 60 degrees F when I headed to work this morning, has me picturing bathing suits and swimming, not snow pants and sledding!
I know we have been mentioning Snowy Owls quite frequently (perhaps our staff is a little caught up in the craze) but can you blame us?? Beautiful, exotic, and unusual birds getting more people interested in birding which hopefully translates to more interest in conservation. Project SNOWstorm was announced as a way to learn more about these beautiful creatures that have captured the hearts of the Northeast. If you are interested, this is an interesting article talking not only about Snowy Owls and the science behind them: http://mdcoastalbays.wordpress.com/2013/12/21/the-snowball-effect-of-project-snowstorm/
Keep your eyes peeled for a flash of white over the holidays and be sure to let us know if you find a snowy owl in southern Chester County!
