Favorite winter visitors: Snowy Owls

Saturday, February 28 at 1:00 pm

For many birders, the Snowy owl (Bubo scandiacus) is now a familiar sight along Cape Cod’s winter shoreline. How many of us love to spot these beautiful birds of prey as they perch majestically amongst the dunes? Come listen to Ian Ives, Director of MassAudubon’s Long Pasture Wildlife Sanctuary, as he delves into the Snowy Owl’s life cycle and describes how the lemming boom of 2013 affected the owl populations we are encountering today.
