Snowy Owl

Amazing that these birds are still around on this ridiculous date! Many of the deep agricultural ditches still had some snow in them. All 3 owls were visible simultaneously. One (nearly all white) on a utility pole at the intersection of Ringle and Gotham Roads, one (also nearly all white) on a utility pole perhaps slightly more than 1/4 mile east of Ringle on the south side of Gotham, and one (moderately marked) sitting on a duck blind about half way between these two, about 100 yards north of Gotham Road. Photos of all 3 individuals available and will be added soon.
