Scott Weidensaul: Caught in the SNOWstorm - Snowy Owls
Monday, November 20 at 8:00pm, Stainton Hall, Pennington School, 112 W. Delaware Avenue, Pennington, NJ
The winter of 2013-14 saw the largest invasion of snowy owls into the eastern United States in perhaps a century — and marked an unprecedented opportunity to learn more about these mysterious Arctic hunters. Author and researcher Scott Weidensaul will share the story of Project SNOWstorm — how a huge, collaborative research effort focused on snowy owls came together in a few frantic weeks, funded with the help of people from around the world, and continues to make discoveries and unexpected insights into the life and ecology of this great white raptor.
Scott Weidensaul is the author of more than two dozen books on natural history. He lives in the mountains of eastern Pennsylvania, where he studies the migration of owls and hummingbirds.
