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.
