Cover: Snowy Owl Invasion!: Tracking an Unusual Migration

The winter of 2013-2014 brought an unprecedented number of snowy owls to the United States. Normally these birds stay all year in the Arctic. Scientists took advantage of the flocks by banding many and attaching transmitters to others in order to study the flight patterns – research that they have not been able to conducted previously.
Because the banding happened so recently, scientists are just beginning to use the data they have been collecting. Because if this, there really isn’t a section about the uses for the research or things that the general populous should be aware of. In that regard, this book is a little less useful than Markle’s other books. Don’t get me wrong – the bandings and transmitter part is cool, just not what I normally expect. And the photographs – top notch!
