Along Tuliptree Trail in very early afternoon. Seen twice, but too many branches for a photo.

1
Snowy Owl

One was reported from this general area several weeks ago by Jim Burk, but to my knowledge has not been seen since. This bird was reported yesterday by Irene Woods, and it was located in exactly the same spot today. It is about half a kilometre away from the road in the middle of an agricultural field, and only visible from the road. With the bright sunlight, there were some 'heat waves' interfering with the camera, so it isn't as sharp as I would like.
