I just read the sightings log at Cincinnati Birds, and there is a snowy owl near Circleville, Ohio.
Hmmm….do I risk driving with two crazy little girls for two hours to maybe see a snowy?

    I saw the Wilmington Snowy Owl in Jan, 2001. It was the first bird I every “chased,” and I haven’t seen one since. Snowy Owls are not uncommon in Northern Ohio, around Lake Erie, in the winter, but to get one this far south is prety unusual.

    A birder friend and I are considering going after this one, if you want to come along. We just need to sync our schedules. Unfortunately, it hasn’t been seen in the last 2 days, according to the Ohio BIrds listserv. I’ll e-mail you.

    What the heck, give it a whirl!

    We usually have a snowy or two show up at the Minneapolis/St. Paul airport. I’ve never gone looking, but am determined to try this year. Good luck!

    Geoff has reserved a room at a hotel near Circleville for the girls and me, so we are on our way to hunt for the snowy. But considering I have about 1 hour of daylight left, we will have to search tomorrow. But the hotel has a pool, so at least we won’t be bored.
    I will be taking the laptop, so I will keep everyone updated!
    Wish us luck!

    Good luck, Susan! We’ll be waiting to hear of your adventure!

    Can’t wait to hear the stories behind you finding this snowy! Good luck!
