  • Quite a traveler

    MILWAUKEE -- Iglaak, the Inuit word for "traveler" or "stranger," is what the Wisconsin Humane Society named the regal-eyed snowy owl it rescued from a downtown Milwaukee parking lot in late November. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...ome/307966002/

    Personal note: I have seen snowy owls in their habitat in northern Alaska. They are quite a sight. Snowy owls have also been seen in New Jersey, reported in December. see: https://www.northjersey.com/story/en...wls/964966001/

    Both links have video content of the birds.

      They feed primarily on lemmings, and apparently there has been an 'explosion' of them recently, so there has been a build up of Snowy owls, and some have traveled very far in search of food as the lemming population decreases. What was nice about the Milwaukee story was the rehab of the lucky owl.

        We had a snowy owl near us in Dec. When there's lots of food on the breeding grounds, more of the young survive and they often come far south in search of food in the winter And they often get injured or malnourished along the way. Beautiful birds!
