There’s not a whole lot of white in our landscape this winter. In fact, none here today, though there is some ice build-up on some of the trees. As I write, it’s another rainy day outside our Canton studios, and looks like lots of the same around the region.
Is the news that people are sighting snowy owls in Syracuse at all cheering? The Syracuse Post Standard (via Associated Press) reports people have seen at least three snowy owls at the Syracuse Airport this winter.
Syracuse airport officials say they monitor the owls to make sure they don’t pose any dangers to aviation. Officials say if the birds become a safety concern, experts from Cornell University will be brought in to relocate them.
This morning, Cornell’s ornithology lab circulated this video:
which has some great shots of owls, and some interesting info.
I’m interested: any snowy owls in our/your neighborhood?
