On the afternoon of Jan 5 the Snowy Owl was near the boat ramp where it was reported earlier. It spent some time on the ice north of the ramp. Near sunset it was perched on a broken limb of a tree, and then after sunset it flew far to the west and stood on a small hummock of piled-up ice far from the lake shore-- perhaps to be far from people? At one point in the afternoon it had been accidentally flushed by someone walking down the boat ramp because the bird was perched low on the rocky side of the boat ramp at a place where it could not easily be seen from the land.
