This is so cool! Isn’t it amazing that an owl can be this white? Nature is such a miracle.
The majestic white owl, native to the Arctic, often spends winters in Canada and the far northern reaches of the United States. During periods of irruptive population growth, they can venture farther south in the U.S., occasionally making appearances in Pennsylvania.
On Tuesday, a snowy owl was spotted in a field along Trindle Road in Middlesex Township, Cumberland County, drawing a small crowd eager to take in the rare visitor.
Photos of the snowy owl were shared by The Sentinel and PennLive photographer Joe Hermitt.
