They are a beautiful, but unusual sight in the Boundary Bay area of Delta.
Snowy owls usually live and breed in Alaska and the Yukon. But this year, they've come south because their food supply of lemmings was lacking.
However, the snowy owls have also been seen even further south from Washington to Illinois and Maine. And believe it or not, one was even spotted as far south as Honolulu.
Here in Delta though, it’s been more than five years since there's been a display of these majestic animals.
