This is crazy. I don't see a Snowy Owl in Morrison County for years and now there 
are several. A new spot and it is an immature. On Minn 27 East of Lastrup 
between 4 3/4 to 5 miles. Have not relocated but if someone is out there, try to 
find it. A hunter walked up to it (very close) before it flew off.
Had reports from people on the N.E. end of Little Falls who claim a Snowy showed 
up in their back yards near 606 6th street. And found another Snowy 3 miles 
directly North of the one sighted near Royal Farms (on Cty 26 west of Royalton 1 
mile). The Bird was a little north of the Soo Line bike trail on Hilton Road. Have to 
look from road to locate. Farmer does not want people on his property. Could also 
look north from the Soo Line Trail. I put an article in the Morrison County Record 
asking people to report any irregular owls, hurt owls, ect. And gave them some 
guidelines. Now I'm getting calls and also have contacts for rehab sites. In the 
article I told people to report any poachers or people messing with the birds. A 
little public awareness and I'm surprised in the responses. The general populous is 
concerned about the owls welfare.  I wouldn't be finding these birds if it were not 
for them.    Frank Gosiak  Little Falls,  Morrison County
