Snowy owls descend on Northland in search of food
Call it the invasion of the snowies.
Snowy owls, normally residents of the tundra, are showing up in Minnesota and across the United States this winter.
Such an influx of owls is called an invasion or an irruption by birders. A map of snowy sightings at eBird.org indicates that the invasion stretches from Washington and Oregon as far east as New Brunswick, Canada.
