NYTimes report on Snowy irruption.

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/01/23/science/earth/spike-in-snowy-owl-sightings-stirs-speculation-among-bird-watchers.html

Dateline:  Helena, MT, sources include Denver Holt, director of http://www.owlinstitute.org/, including the story of the Hawaii S.O., which was shot at the airport.

Cause of irruption still debated:  over- or under-abundance of food.  (Poor reporter once calls it a "migration".)
