GREAT SNOWY OWL "ERUPTION!"

by Jack Sunday

One of the passions I learned from my father was an appreciation of birds.  They not only look good but they're fascinating creatures descended from Dinosaurs.  And, they often taste "just like chicken."  

This year there has been an "eruption" of Great Snowy Owls from the Arctic.  These birds are being spotted all over the United States.  I SAW ONE myself near Microsoft in South Fargo just a week or two ago!  It was magnificent.  White, (duh!)  A huge wing spread, Stan Tekeila, the naturalist tells us they can have a wing span of 5-6 feet.

We opened our phone lines and took calls from listeners that have seen a Great Snowy in their lifetimes or even just lately.
