Josh Engel of the Field Museum puts some perspective on the latest irruption of snowy owls, including a take on the social media aspect,this afternoon on “Outside.”
It is a good discussion on what is a historic irruption of snowy owls, including why, what and where.
Oh, and what he has found and is finding in his work on snowy owl pellets.
At the end, we touch on the intersection of social media with the latest irruption, which I find most fascinating.
