It is rare for Snowy Owls to come this far south to Colorado but in some years they do make their way to the Centennial State. The types of events that bring them here are called an irruption and while it isn't perfectly clear what causes them, it is believed that a very successful summer breeding season results in an over-population of young owls in the Arctic. As a result, many head south in the winter in search of food.
