Snowy owls have been spotted in Oregon! They are almost a meter tall, and their diet is 90% lemmings, plus voles and other small mammals. They live in the Arctic the rest of the year, but are known to fly south in large numbers every few winters; it’s called an irruption.This year, the numbers are super high, and it is kind of a mystery. One even showed up in Hawaii and they shot it at the airport! It was the first snowy owl there…ever, and they shot it at the airport.
