Hi All--

On Tuesday afternoon, Gene Bauer called to report a Snowy Owl in Rice Co.
near the intersection of MN 19 and Dakota Co. 59, just within Rice Co.  I
took some interesting photos and posted them on my bog

As a postscript on the gull photo I recently posted on the blog, at this
time I think a good argument can be made that the bird is a Vega Gull, the
Asian race of the Herring.  There are photos on the web that are nearly
identical.  See for example

 Good Birding!
