Snowy Owl Rescue (Portland Press Herald)

Snowy OwlWe have an “invasion” on our hands — but don’t grab your pitchforks just yet, because these newcomers are more fluffy than formidable (though their lemming prey would almost certainly disagree). Snowy owls, denizens of the Arctic, have been flocking south in record numbers this winter, thanks to fluctuating prey populations up north. One such fine-feathered friend found its way into a deserted building in Portland, Maine, where it may have been dining on pigeons before being rescued by a local falconer.

Watch a video of Portland’s very own Hedwig as the bird is set free near Rockland.
