>From  the USFWS National Wildlife Refuges Facebook  Page:
"In  a phenomenon that happens once every five years or so, the snowy owls 
of the  Arctic are winging into the Lower 48 states. Most snowy owls live 
year-round  in the Arctic Refuge _http://go.usa.gov/5Cb_ 
(http://go.usa.gov/5Cb)   and other sites north of AK’s Brooks Range. A few usually overwinter in 
the N.  Plains and New England, but this fall they are spreading across the 
U.S in  great numbers. Sharp-eyed folks at _Oregon Coast NWR  Complex_ 
(https://www.facebook.com/usfwsoregoncoast)  report sightings there. Other  
sightings come from MA’s Parker River Refuge and as far south as  KS."
Simply  awesome!
