It is not too late to photography Snowy Owls in the far northern United States.
This is the current (February 23) eBird map of the Snowy Owl sightings in North America for the month of February. The darker the shade of purple the greater the number of sightings.
Zoom in on a purple area of the map and you can see the individual locations where Snowy Owls have been observed. Click on one of the red markers to see the dates of the sightings at that location. This is the map for the area around Rudyard in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. My advice, whatever part of the country you go to, is to pick locations that have had sightings in the last 2 or 3 days.
Finding Snow Owls is only half the battle. The real challenge is knowing what to do to come away with a great photograph. Everything you need to know to find and photograph Snowy Owls is in my Snowy Owl photography series.
