The Star-Ledger had an interesting wire story on Snowy Owls yesterday.
The main thrust: "Biologists say an increase in snowy owl sightings across northern states suggests that the arctic species is doing so well on its northern breeding ground that competition is driving the young ones south."
Link to the Associated Press story is here. Snowy Owl information from the NY State DEC is here.

We have played down their presence because too many people were trespassing on private property — and getting too close tothe birds.
