January 10th, 2009 The Elusive Snow Owl

On our way back from Ft. Snelling State Park we stopped at the airport on cargo road.  Now as we were passing Ft. Snelling National Cemetery Alison described an almost perfect Snow Owl with it’s back facing the highway but, it was well inside the Cemetery, and with the turnaround from 494 it would have been a 15 minute journey but, she had seen an Owl.  We took the 24th avenue exit, and drove around the side of the airport, underneath a runway to the fed-ex building where a snow owl has been spotted daily since early December.   We watched the airplanes for a few minutes but, short of spotting the owl we were not really expecting to see anything so we headed to Black Dog Road.  I have not seen a large number of owls this year as I usually do but, they have Eagles.  This was a quick trip, we did not go as far as the East outlet from Black Dog Lake.  The kids had gotten their fresh air for the day and were not afraid to express it.  Once I arrived home I noticed I had a text from Bill D that their were not any Snow Owls at the airport with a timestamp dated before we even stopped (opps).  After I got home I saw that someone had reported one in Dodge County, I don’t think that is going to happen.
