I watched it until 8:15. It was loyal to the poles directly east of the home about 0.5 miles south of the intersection of 230th and Co. Rd. 12. It actively moved around and hunted, even nabbing something on the shoulder in my headlights and then later going after birds at a feeder at the aforementioned house. Yesterday I saw the Atwater Snowy Owl on the exact same pole it was first discovered by my principal 9 days ago - on Kandiyohi Co. Rd. 10 about a mile west of Co. Rd. 2 and just before 180th St, last pole on the line. This bird has been seen on these poles, on an irrigator and on the ground in the section to the northwest of the Co. Rd. 2/10 intersection and on a pole on 105th Ave to the east of that intersection. A wildlife artist who'd previously contacted me about where to search for a Snowy was on the scene before me getting some good pictures of her lifer Snowy.
