A 4-Snowy Owl Day - 14 Jan 2017
Phil Van Daele reported an all-white Snowy Owl just east of Britton, MI in Lenawee Co. yesterday. Since it was too cold for an outside bird trip Robin and I decided to take a drive to look for it. A swing through Willow Run Airport on the way gave us our best looks at a Snowy Owl; it was perched on the fence along the south end service drive. It flew off as we were pulling up behind another photographer who was out photographing it from across the road.
We continued on past the entrance to the airport buildings and found another Snowy Owl perched on the roof of a building just on the other side of the fence. I digiscoped it from 50-70 yards away.
