Chevy: (I'm don't where this bird was photographed = same?)

I regularly see 3 snowy owls. Most often seen is one that cruises the fields along Hwy 26 in the Edenvale area (just west of Horseshoe Valley Rd). I see him pretty regular.

There is another that roams the field north and east of Stayner. Less often seen but there is another that patrols the fields around Cashtown Corners (east of Creemore).

There was a radio report I heard this week that claimed Toronto is seeing an unusually high number of snowy owls this year. Has to be food source related.

I think it's Global Cooling.

From the reading i've done. The average clutch size of snowy owls last year was on average 2-3 times larger due to an abundance of prey in their breeding areas. Thus a much larger population this year, forcing large numbers of them further south to winter and feed. Makes it a great year to get out and look for them as this is a "random" (more like cyclical) occurrence that happens every few years.
