(WLUK) -- A winter visitor has been spotted in Northeast Wisconsin.

Jim shared several photos of a snowy owl perched at Oconto Breakwater Park on Sunday.

Snowy owls, native to the Arctic Circle, have been visiting Wisconsin during recent winters. The birds' trips south of the U.S.-Canada border are called "irruptions."
