As we've reported several times, the Northland is seeing an influx of owls from Canada this winter. They've moved south in search of food, such as mice and voles.

While many owls are finding good pickings in our area, some owls, inevitably, will perish here. But some good may come of that. The Duluth Audubon Society reports the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is collecting dead boreal or saw-whet owls this winter for use in research.

If you find a dead owl, place it in a plastic bag with the date and general location where it was found, and take it to the nearest Minnesota DNR wildlife office -- in Duluth, Cloquet, Two Harbors, Tower or wherever you may be.

We welcome your submissions and suggestions. Drop us a line at news@duluthnews.com, on Twitter, Areavoices, or mail items to Eh?, Duluth News Tribune newsroom, 424 W. First St., Duluth, MN 55802.
