Snowy owl and northern hawk-owl in the Netherlands


This video from Canada says about itself:

A Snowy Owl Success Story

In late November 2011, an emaciated snowy owl was rescued by Mountainaire Avian Rescue Society. He was far from his Arctic home, probably driven south by a lack of food in the north. After less than a month he was fit enough to be released, to return home when he’s ready.

This morning, a male snowy owl was seen in the sand dunes, on Vlieland island in the Netherlands.

On 28 December, a male snowy owl had been seen in the north of Texel island, not so far from Vlieland. Was this the same owl? However, the Texel observer describes the bird as not yet an adult; the Vlieland observer as adult.

The northern hawk-owl is also still in Zwolle today.
