Many people have volunteered their private plane to take the snowy owl up north.

When you say a Snowy Owl is being flown to Vermont/Minnesota on a private plane, do you mean that it is a hitchhiker (e.g., there is already a plane flying to these areas and the owl is along for the ride), or do you mean that this owl is a special delivery, and a private plane is making a trip solely to drop off an owl? Thanks.

He is doing well and awaiting release. Go to CRC’s website, blog or Facebook page to see beautiful videos of him in the flight cage.

Since this list serve reaches birders it also reaches many people in the fish and wildlife community. I think it was appropriate for the concern to be raised and I hope people who know more will act. On a completely different note I just returned from a visit to Ohio. Most of the northern counties in Ohio have Snowy Owls. I saw one 1/28 in Wayne County, Ohio. Are any reaching NC?
