Mike and Jenn Rader spotted a Snowy Owl at Cheyenne Bottoms yesterday afternoon (12/18/17). Good bird for our Christmas Bird Count. It was presumably a juvenile bird with quite a bit of dark markings on it.
It was located in the southwest portion of Pool 3b, about ½ mile in headed east on the "Claflin" dike.
However, I was not able to relocate it this morning.
