Bye-Bye Snowy Owl

This is actually old news, back to November 2007. This Snowy Owl came to us from Barrow with a head injury. We suspect that it was hit by a car. After about a month of r&r, he was ready for release.

Snowies don't live in the Anchorage area, or do they migrate here much anymore. The crowded city life is not their style. Long time volunteer Bill Samuelson volunteered to take him with him to Cold Bay when he went on his hunting trip and release him.

Thanks Bill! It looks like the perfect place for him.
