Hey All, after returning home last night on a midnight flight, I opted to do a quick scan of the jetport area for the snowy owls reported earlier. I was able to locate one on the tall tower off jetport plaza road, just in from fire gate 4. It was actively scanning from its perch so I did not stay but for a few minutes. I believe it was benefiting from the glow of the tower while scanning as I have found them at this location with some frequency. Apologies for the late report but I was not sure how many would be reading email at 1AM and figured by sunrise it would have relocated somewhere else at the jetport for the day. Good to check the area though!

There were two visible at the southeast end of the Portland International Jetport, viewed from Lydia Ln, an extension of Brickhill Ave. The most surprising was the first bird we saw, perched on a light post along I-295 directly across from Exit 4 (on the southbound side). You should obviously be responsible driving and watch the road but anyone driving on 295 south of Portland might want to peak at lamp posts.
