As has been posted before, there is going to be a great documentary on Snowy Owls shown on PBS television and it is being shown tonight (Nature: “Magic of the Snowy Owl”) from 8:00 PM until 9:00 PM, but there is also a local connection to this video.  The documentary was made by Michael G. Male and his wife, Judith Ferth.  Michael was born and raised in North Haven, CT, and also worked at Sleeping Giant State Park as a young man.  Today’s New Haven Register (Local Section) has a large article on Michael and Judith and their film/video work over the years.  Michael and Judith are also the creators of the “Watching Warblers” and “Watching Sparrows” DVD’s which are great for learning how to identify these birds both by sight and sound and are carried by The Fat Robin birding shop in Hamden.  Hope this documentary on the Snowy Owl is released at some point for home purchase.  Can’t wait to see this program tonight!
