Milwaukee Airport Snowy Owl
Someone forwarded me a photo of a Snowy Owl that landed on someone's roof in my neighborhood. I was MAD. I usually only see the SNOWs when they are way far out on the ice under the Hoan bridge. Well, I can't be mad now--I happened upon a young, female SNOW as she scoped out her surroundings at the Milwaukee Airport while driving north along Howell this evening. I didn't have my camera with me, but, luckily, she was in the same place when I returned with it about ten minutes later. I got to watch her for about ten minutes or so. Then, she flew up on top of a light pole right on Howell, but only briefly before she soared east over the airport post office. What a great way to end a Monday!
