Tom Mc Donald in his talk at Montezuma had some suggestions as to why Snowy Owls come to the same areas. Lights at airports seem to attract them. They stop where there is water. In the winter they often hunt waterfowl. Cayuga lake is right near the airport and gives them another source of food besides rabbits and rodents. Last year’s Gyrfalcon was also hunting waterfowl on the lake . I do wonder if it’s the same bird returned.
