Best of This Birding Life: Snowy Owl Invasion with Scott Weidensaul

Posted on Wed, 16 Jan 2019 | Episode Duration: 43 minutes, 09 seconds

TBL host Bill Thompson, III, will be away from the BWD home nest for a while. We hope soon to resume new episodes of the podcast we all know and love, but in the interim, we’re taking a trip down memory lane and replaying some of the most popular episodes.

In this episode from December 2017, owl expert Scott Weidensaul joins Bill for a discussion of the winter’s invasion of snowy owls from the Arctic. Through Project SNOWstorm (co-founded by Scott), a volunteer field research program studying these magnificent, mostly white owls, we are learning a great deal about their behavior, population dynamics, natural history, and how they interact with us humans, and vice versa. Scott also shares his tips for watching a snowy owl respectfully, without disturbing it.
