    Seems we are getting more snowy owl visitors than usual this winter. According to the article the last time this happened was about six years ago or so. I don’t recall ever seeing one, but that would be a very cool experience.

    I’ve never seen one, but my buddies 45 yrs ago saw one when out hunting.

    I had one that I saw just about every year from around the 2005 year period until I retired. It was usually in a couple section area in Osceola County, NW Iowa

    Saw one sitting in a tree going across the mile long bridge over Saylorville Res last Saturday morning.

    my parents had one hanging around their farm in Kossuth county for 4 days at the beginning of the month. I saw it the one day I was over there, I didn’t realize how big they are.
