Snowy Owls Still Hanging Around House

As of Sunday we are still getting periodic visits of Snowy Owls by (and on) our house outside Genoa. There are at least two; I believe one to be an immature male and the other an immature female.

Combined, my wife and I have spotted one or the other or both nearly a dozen times now, often on the nastiest of days which there have been many! Sunday produced high winds.

Here is a video I shot from the garage window and then from the dining room window. The owls have been using the roof as a hunting perch but move around a lot.

If the video embed doesn’t work, go here to see video.

Email me if you want directions (I don’t really want to post my address on here).

Snowy Owl and Other Snow Birds

At about 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday,12/3, Mary Kisamore saw a Snowy Owl while she was driving north on N. Main St. in the area of Winnebago County Animal Shelter, & Bergners Distribution Center. The owl flew across the road directly in front of her, flying east toward the Industrial Park.

Was not relocated today.

Mary also saw a large flock of Snow Buntings and some Lapland Longspurs around Cunningham Road and Pecatonica Road.

I also saw longspurs, buntings, and Horned Larks on Edson Road by the dump.
