Steve & Dottie Cooper saw the Snowy Owl 8:30-9:00 am today in the same areas as described before on the web site. The owl was active. We observed it on both sides of the road. First seen on a lone fence post on the south side of the road about 1/4 of a mile west of the bend in Gleasman Road. A crow landed by the owl and walked around and checked it out. Then a Red-Tailed Hawk flew by several times until the owl flew to the power pole with several transformers on it. We think the owl caught a small rodent in the ditch. The owl doesn’t appear to be disturbed by the traffic.
It was a life bird for both of us.

Hope the Christmas Count is productive for all of you hardy souls.
