Greetings, Snowy owls in Western Washington are irregular visitors. They do periodically wander into Western Washington, seems to be a once or twice per decade event. There was an “irruption” of snowy owls in winter 2011 with many seen on the coast at places like Ocean Shores and Damon Point.

There have been other irruptions with lower numbers in winters 2012 & 2013. I personally have only seen one or two snowy owls at Billy Frank Jr./Nisqually NWR in the last 10 years. Here’s a link to a poor shot of that owl at Nisqually November 2012:
