I located a heavily-barred juvenile Snowy Owl in Maple Grove around mid-day today, Monday January 13. This is likely the same owl reported by others in this area recently.
Location: Intersection of Kirkwood Lane N and 82nd Avenue N.
The owl was perched on a rock outcrop overlooking a large pond about 150 yards from the intersection.
Here are a few photos I digiscoped with my iPhone and spotting scope while sitting in my car.http://www.flickr.com/photos/rburmaster/11934244865/in/set-72157639585986196http://www.flickr.com/photos/rburmaster/11934117455/in/set-72157639585986196/http://www.flickr.com/photos/rburmaster/11934962986/in/set-72157639585986196/
