This morning I took a pre-dawn trip to Hutchinson and viewed the NHOW right 
at first light.  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.

All Grove City reports have dried up.
