A farmer reported a Snowy Owl this morning to Kristi Hughes. She followed up and got some dandy photos (see Kansas Birding Facebook). I followed up this evening and was able to relocate. The bird was seen near Chanute. It was a pretty dark individual so I assume it was a young individual. It looked very healthy. A KDWPT employee showed up to possibly take it to a rehab but thought it looked good enough to leave be. I believe this is a species not currently on the county list.
