In this Dec 22, 2011 file photo, Jenny Wenzel from the Hoy Audubon Society watches a snowy owl as it perches on the roof of the North Beach Oasis on the Lake Michigan shoreline in Racine, Wis.

Birdwatchers have reported higher-than-normal numbers of Snowy Owls across the Dakotas, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan, and the white, yellow-eyed birds have been spotted as far south as Kansas.
