Fewer Snowy Owls - are they heading north, away from Regina?

Regina, Saskatchewan: There are fewer snowy owls now. A few weeks ago, any drive in the countryside would lead to half a dozen of more sightings of owls on posts and poles. Today, I saw only two: one far off into a field, and one skittish regular near St. Michael's, the retreat in Lumsden, SK.

Here's what may be my last clear shot for the year, a snowy owl north off Regina, west of Highway Six on the way to Craven.  I feel honoured to have witnessed the Winter 11/12 owl irruption from the Arctic.
