Snowy owl spotted in Ballard

Posted by Geeky Swedes on December 29th, 2011

“There’s a snowy owl hanging out in Ballard this morning,” Kristi writes.

“Last spotted on the church roof across from the Library,” she tells us. “He’s being followed and surrounded by a very large murder of crows and a couple of seagulls.”

According to our news partners, The Seattle Times, there is a rare irruption of snowy owls in our region. “They will be here until about March, feasting mostly on voles and other small mammals, resting and fattening before returning to the Arctic for the breeding season,” writes Lynda V. Mapes in the article.
