Snowy Owls migrate from the Artic to southern destinations such as Boundry Bay/Delta in search of food. In the years when their typical food supply (lemmings) is in peril, they will migrate in search of a new food supply. This explains why there have been sightings in some US states.

About SandyVe

SandyVe

I love taking pictures. I try to always have my camera with me so I'm ready. It's very relaxing to just go out for a drive and take in the sites. I would say my two favortie subjects are the weather and nature. I get a blast out of taking photos of storms. I live in eastern Kansas so we can get some pretty active storms through this part of the country! I also enjoy viewing all of the pictures here on this site. It's great to see photos from all over the world and sharing my own. I will try to watch for comments and reply as soon as possible. Thanks!
