Who would ever expect to see a snowy owl at the Grand Central Mall? An immature male snowy owl caused a stir amongst birdwatchers and the public alike when it appeared for a week in December 2017. Julie Zickefoose relates the moving story of his star-crossed stay, observing both the owl and his instant fans. Julie herself was drawn into a web of connectivity that protected and ultimately rescued this precious visitor from the Arctic. If ever there were a feel-good wildlife story, this is it. Expect to learn painlessly about snowy owl biology and the art of wildlife rehabilitation, carried along on Zickefoose’s lively narrative and vivid images.
