Snowy Owl

May 11, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

The Snowy Owl movements are a function of the tundra population of lemmings. Unfortunately this does not affect Nova Scotia so much as the central provinces, Manitoba and Saskatchewan, and the adjoining states due to the natural movement of birds in the central flyway.

The Snowy Owl appears most years in Nova Scotia, often on Cape Sable Island and the adjoining islets and often at Hartlen Point. I've seen them in Crystal Crescent Beach Provincial Park.

They are our biggest owls by weight and will predate other owls. In Manitoba a reliable place to find them in winter was by the chicken processing plants and around Oak Hammock Marsh.
