This screen grab from BirdsEye's Twitter feed shows the extent of the snowy owl migration across the northern United States. Last week we posted about the increasing frequency of local bird watchers spotting the owl, most commonly associated with the "Harry Potter" books and movies, at Montrose Harbor and other points of the lakefront. A breeding boom of the species in the Arctic has them traveling farther south in search of food, and the snowy owl is finding plenty along the Third Coast. This screen grab shows it isn't unique to the Midwest.
Unfortunately for app lovers, neither the full nor lite versions of BirdsEye are free.
