OYSTER RIVER – A success story flew away from the Mountainaire Avian Rescue Society Friday, the only survivor of a winter filled with snowy white owl arrivals.
The birds aren’t supposed to be on Vancouver Island, many flew off their normal migration route this winter, arriving here underweight, exhausted, and near death. Six were brought into the centre over the past few months, and five have died.
