I just located a Snowy Owl in Nicollet County just south of Rush River. From the east side of town go south on 387 ave 3/4 mile (1/4 mi into Nicollet County). The bird was on the east side of the road, on the very edge of a field right next to the south side of a drainage ditch - in front of a couple of cedar shrubs.
