I placed a story in local newspapers last week asking readers to report
sightings of Snowy Owls in the Red River Valley.  Here's an update:

At 9am today, Van Hapka reported a female Snowy Owl on 190th Street NW in
Warren  - 2.5 miles west of the Audubon Center.  I photographed that
bird... and on the way to see it I spotted 3 Rough-legged Hawks, 2 Bald
Eagles, 4 Ravens, a flock of redpolls and 4 Black-billed Magpies.

Rex Crapeau reported another at 9:30am at Evans Scrap & Steel on Hwy 32 in
Thief River Falls.  He reported another - darker Snowy Owl - a mile north
of Evans between Hwy 59 and 32.
