Snowy owl are well documented in the area on both sides of the straits. This bird was crossing from somewhere near the headlands park to the west of McGulpin and heading north low over the water across the straits. It was completely calm which is what I have noticed the owls seem to like when crossing. Leonard Graf spotted the bird first so two observers noted this bird. I would hope the rarity box for this species gets removed as again this is an extremely well documented species in the straits on both sides.
