2.The authors purpose was to inform readers about our new visitors and maybe even advise caution to those who come in contact with the owls. The audience is people who have an interest in owls or live on the east coast.
3. I agree with the author it is very dangerous for the owls to be freely roaming in the streets.
4.I have nothing major i would change except maybe getting a few quotes from civilians who spotted the bird but it was very helpful to have zoologist and veterinarians quotes in the article.
5.This article would go under feature it is a specific story putting a spotlight on the arctic owl.
