Contact 585-359-7044

During the presentation, we will cover and chronicle an entire year in the life of a snowy owl. From hatching, migration, wintering, and the bird's return to the Arctic Circle. We will also explore how and where "snowies" move in New York State, as well as take an intimate look into their daily wintertime routines. Lastly, we will discuss environmental changes that are affecting their life cycle and the future of the Tundra.

Tom McDonald has been trapping, banding, and studying snowy owls in New York State for 29 years. His work has been focused on migration ecology and wintering habitat and behavioral studies under his own project, SnowyWatch.

Location Tinker Nature Park, Hansen Nature Center
