Michigan’s First SNOWstorm Snowy Owl

Minolta DSCMichigan’s First SNOWstorm Snowy Owl is named Alma.  He was trapped in Grand Rapids near the airport and was fitted with a transmitter and released near Lansing. ASK’s own Brenda and Rich Keith were there to participate and for training. Michigan’s second transmitter, the Michigan Audubon-sponsored transmitter, will be deployed this weekend in the eastern Upper Peninsula. Best of luck to Whitefish Point Bird Observatory owl pros, Nova MacKentley and Chris Neri! This project would not be possible without the support of the Kalamazoo Nature Center, Audubon Society of Kalamazoo, Laughing Whitefish Audubon Society, and many individual donors.  See the complete story of Alma, Michigan’s First SNOWstorm Snowy Owl at www.projectsnowstorm.org/posts/alma-highly-networked-owl. For more information on Project SNOWstorm, see “Tracking Snowy Owls with Project SNOWstorm” also on ASK’s website.  Project SNOWstorm co-founder, Scott Weidensaul, will be the keynote speaker at the Whitefish Point Bird Observatory Spring Fling, April 24-26. Online registration is coming soon to www.wpbo.org.
