This winter, or the lack there of, has been a bumper year for Snowy Owls here in Southern Ontario. Native to North America's Arctic these beautiful birds have made their way south due to a low cycle of their primary food, lemmings. Arctic lemming populations are on a low cycle and this forces Snowy's to expand their range in search of food. Truly our gain. I am going to miss these magnificent birds when the return to there home range.
