> Issue Alert: We learned this morning that the Port Authority has been shooting snowy owls at JFK. Logan Airport in Boston traps and relocates snowy owls. News link below. Governor's office in NYC is the place to call to register your opposition: (212) 681-4573. Call takes just a moment. Simply say you are calling in opposition to the snowy owls shootings at JFK and they'll ask for your zip code. Help us tell the Port Authority that snowy owls are valued and there are better ways to insure aircraft safety.

> An NBC news team will be meeting with local birders later today and will film some local Snowy Owls so there will be media coverage.
