Caught in the SNOWstorm: 10 Years of Snowy Owl Research

January 10 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EST

Join the NH Audubon Seacoast Chapter for their remote January program: Caught in the SNOWstorm: 10 Years of Snowy Owl Research

The winter of 2013-2014 saw the largest invasion of Snowy Owls into the eastern United States in perhaps a century and marked an unprecedented opportunity to learn more about these mysterious Arctic hunters. Author and researcher Scott Weidensaul will share the story of Project SNOWstorm – how a huge collaborative effort focused on Snowy Owls came together in a few frantic weeks, funded with the help of people from around the world, and continues to make discoveries and unexpected insights into the life and ecology of this great white raptor.

Scott Weidensaul is the author of more than two dozen books on natural history, including the Pulitzer Prize finalist “Living on the Wind” and his latest, the New York Times bestseller “A World on the Wing”. Weidensaul is a contributing editor for Audubon and writes for a variety of other publications, including Bird Watchers Digest and the Cornell Lab’s Living Bird. He is a Fellow of the American Ornithological Society and an active field researcher, studying Northern Saw-whet Owl migration for more than 25 years, as well as winter hummingbirds in the East, bird migration in Alaska, and the winter movements of Snowy Owls through Project SNOWstorm, which he co-founded.

This program will be held via Zoom. For more information on chapter programs, please contact: Dan Hubbard. Cancellations will be posted on the Seacoast Chapter website. Please register in advance for the program at the chapter website. Zoom programs begin promptly at 7:00 pm. You can register right up through the start time.
