A Snowy Owl sitting on the dunes near Delaware Seashore State Park. The Snowy Owl irruption of 2013-2014 has been record setting in many states along the Atlantic coast. As many as 10 of these owls are believed to have been in my home state of Delaware this year; the first winter since 2005 that they've been recorded here. These owls have flown thousands of miles from their homes in the arctic tundra of northern Canada.
