Solstice

SNOWY OWL

Solstice was found at the Newark Airport, during the winter of 2015, with a partial wing tip amputation, possibly after a collision with a plane. This left him with no sustainable flight, therefore he was unable to be released.

Snowy owls are a rare winter visitor in New Jersey. During “irruptive” years larger than average numbers of Snowy Owls will migrate south along the east coast, in search of food.
