CJ Brown Snowy Owl

Another visitor from the far north! Snowy Owl at CJ Brown today.
The owl was found by Clark County birder Dan Kemp.
I was contacted by a park ranger and was there about an hour after Dan found it. It had flown from the original location, but we were able to re-locate it.

We've done a few mornings drives through Old Reid the last weeks. Here's some of the ducks and shorebirds we've seen.

Madison County Snowy Owl

 After seeing social media posts over the last week of a Snowy Owl in Madison County, we decided to join the Snowy Owl club and make the short drive to see it. As predicted, the owl was perched in the Moen Parking lot on rt 40 in Madison County....the same location where it had been for several days. 
Many observers and photographers were present, so we parked and walked toward the crowd. Within 10 minutes of our arrival, the owl flew off, and we were able to catch a couple of nice flight shots.
We stayed around for about 30 minutes, then headed home. I've since seen that the owl is back at the same location.
