Brinker and fellow bird biologist Scott Weidensaul knew if they could follow the movements of these wide-ranging owls as the birds returned to the frozen north, the scientists could learn a lot about their hunting patterns, breeding behavior and migration routes. So the two men launched Project Snowstorn.

They trapped visiting owls and fitted them with solar-powered GPS transmitters.
