Once they find a place to their liking they often stay put for the entire winter.

Yes, my wife observed the Snowy Owl at Sandy Point yesterday afternoon; there were several other intrepid souls who braved the howling winds and saw the owl as well.  She (the owl) seems to have taken up residence there.

It is actually Explore Data -> Species Maps. 

 

Happy Thanksgiving!

I am appreciating the incoming tips!  Two people have said  Explore Data>Explore Species

When I go to Explore Data, there is no Explore Species option.  I was able to find the Puyallup sighting using Explore a region, as one person suggested.  I will keep poking around in eBird and continue learning.

 

Hoping the Sandy Point snowy persists.  After seeing my photos from last weekend, one of my sons said he is interested in seeing it, so Friday we may head north in quest of the owl, the PABU, and any other interesting birds.

 

Thankful to have found this community.  Happy Thanksgiving, all.

Interestingly, eBird no longer gives precise location information for species deemed to be under threat, e.g. Great Gray Owl.  Here's a link to the page that explains this: http://help.ebird.org/customer/en/portal/articles/2885265-sensitive-species-in-ebird.  Here's a link to the threatened species list: http://help.ebird.org/customer/portal/articles/2879207.
