Snowy Owl
Bubo scandiacus

Starke County, IN
21 January 2006

This Snowy Owl was found by Bob Huguenard of North Liberty, Indiana on 20 January 2006. When my wife Chris and I stopped at Michigan City Harbor on 21 Jan, we ran into Michael Topp, Ken Brock, Susan Bagby, and John Cassady, who told us about this bird. After a little searching in the area where it had been seen, Chris spotted it in a coron field.

We were lucky to be able to see this bird; unfortunately it was picked up dead near US 30 on 23 Jan 2006, perhaps a road kill.
