Snowy Owl - Findlay, Ohio

Photo: Mike and Dianne Stoner

Mike and Dianne Stoner found this beautiful chunk of an owl last Friday, March 30, at Findlay Reservoir in Hancock County, Ohio. Snowy Owls are often tame, and this one certainly was. It didn't even flinch at nearby people.

There seems to have been a small run of Snowy Owls over the past week or so, possibly birds that were even further south than central Ohio, and are headed back north. In spite of several searchers, no one was able to relocate this owl the following day. It's probably halfway back to the tundra, but if you're around Findlay Reservoir, keep your eyes peeled.

Thanks to Mike and Dianne for sharing their great find.

We see the Snowys about every 10 years. They are great.
