No Snow, but Plenty of Snowy Owls


I've been grumbling about the lack of snow this year, but what we suddenly have more of is the Arctic snowy owl. Apparently plentiful food for the beautiful birds has caused a population explosion, and the young males are expanding their territory, with Northern states in the US, like Michigan, being the beneficiaries. Here's a report of a news crew finding one in Muskegon's waste water treatment facility.

Here's some YouTube footage some local person in Muskegon took of a snowy owl.
