Over Christmas break, our local paper reported unusual Snowy Owls sighting in the area as they move south in search of food. Our friend Dawn emailed last week to say she’d twice seen a Snowy Owl below the dam south of town.

We headed that direction this morning on what we thought would be a long shot. But, as we turned to drive below the dam, we found a group of people watching a Snowy Owl as it perched on a speed limit sign.We never imagined we’d be so lucky!

Despite the cars and spectators all around, the owl stayed put for quite a long time.

You can see the owl below—he’s just left of the roof rack on blue SUV.

As we headed down this road, we ended up a bit closer.

    What Dad said was – I can’t believe that many people stopped to see one hooter! I am envious, too! What a beautiful bird!

    Amazing! And I love the photo of Olivia looking through the binocs, too. It looks like she has a bonnet on — a girl of the prairie!
