Great shot. Such a beautiful bird. We had quite a few along the coast in WA one winter when the came down from BC. Apparently they were not finding enough food in CA because of their large number that year.
Thanks - glad you like this one! In 2012 we had a large irruption of Snowy Owls - which is probably the year you remember. The reasons for the migration isn't generally to find food, but a variety of other factors such as an abundance of food during the summer breeding season.
