Birds - Snowy Owl
Class:Aves Order:Strigiformes Family:Strigidae


These owls became stars this year as they made rare appearances at Smithville Lake, Squaw Creek and other Missouri and Kansas parks. Apparently a shortage of lemmings has caused them to travel further South in search of food. John McConnell took these photographs at Smithville Lake in January of 2012.

All species pages are currently being updated with more useful descriptions and information.
