Snowy owl ir­rup­tions

Birds & Blooms - - Bird Tales - Deb Potts WEYAUWEGA, WIS­CON­SIN

made head­lines across the north­ern states a few years ago. In Wis­con­sin, an air­port had to de­velop a pro­gram to re­move the ma­jes­tic birds from dan­ger­ous ar­eas. They uti­lized lo­cal fal­con­ers to trap and trans­port snowies to ap­pro­pri­ate lo­ca­tions. Af­ter mak­ing sure the owls were healthy, they re­leased them. I was for­tu­nate enough to see the re­lease of this beauty.
