There’s a different sort of snow that is actually being welcomed in Binghamton this winter!Ross Park Zoo in Binghamton has been loaned a pair of Snowy Owls by the Columbus Zoo.

The birds, Blizzard and Storm, were hatched in Hanover and Dierenpark Zoos in Germany and were sent to the U.S. as part of the American Zoo Association Snowy Owl Species Survival Program to increase the genetic diversity of the North American captive population. Currently, there are about 35 Snowy Owls in AZA zoos across the country.

Snowy Owls are also know as the Arctic Owl or Great White Owl and, at times, wild Snowy Owls have been sighted in the Southern Tier of New York.

The Binghamton Zoo is located on Morgan Road on the City’s South Side.

For more information, call (607) 724-5461 or visit the zoo’s website at www.rossparkzoo.com.
