I Found the Snowy Owl in Livingston County!

I saw something white on the side of the road and got out of the car for a better look through my lens. It was not a Snowy Owl plastic grocery bag. It was not a Snowy Owl white plastic bottle. It was not a Snowy Owl statue of a Great Horned Owl painted whitle. It was a Snowy Owl!!!

Snowy Owl, closer.

He looked around.

And flew away.

far away.

to a nearby barn.
