Project SNOWstorm celebrates third anniversary

David Mitchell

Project SNOWstorm, a study aimed at tagging and tracking snowy owls (Bubo scandiacus) to learn more about the species and its movement, recently celebrated its third anniversary. The project, which was featured as part of the cover article in the Winter 2015 issue of The Wildlife Professional, has been successful in tagging a total of 43 snowy owls in 10 states following an unusually high number of the birds migrating south during the winter of 2013. This winter, the team plans to tag at least 10 more owls, focusing more on specific habitats and regions where they need better samples.
