Project Snowstorm on Amherst Island

Category: Uncategorized

APAI commends Project Snowstorm for its ongoing research and the exciting placement of transmitters on two Snowy Owls on Amherst Island last week. Thanks to the Project Snowstorm team lead by Dr. Jean-Francoisl Therrien, Senior Research Biologist,Hawk Mountain Sanctuary for outstanding work in icy cold conditions, to Kurt Hennige of the Kingston Field Naturalists for liaising with the team, to Janet Scott for her gracious hospitality, to Bonnie LIvingstone and Janet for scouting owl locations, to Jean Iron of the Ontario Field Ornithologists for connecting everyone, and to the many Islanders who cheered and supported the team.
