Wildlife photographers and bird enthusiasts across NE have been chasing snowy owls with increased interest the past three years along the seacoast since the winter irruption of 2013-14. Scientists suggest the irruption was likely due to an increase in lemmings that led to bigger broods. It's likely that New Englanders saw more snowys than at any time since 1943 that year. The good news is that a few seem to be finding their way back to NH since then.
