Subject: [Maine-birds] Snowy Owls (2), South Portland (Jetport)

Late afternoon (4:30) around the Jetport,Fire Gate 3, at the junction of Jetport Plaza Rd & Westbrook St had a great, long (~30 minutes) view of a snowy inside the jetport. It was sitting on the stop sign next to the runway, actively looking around yet completely ignoring the landing jets hurtling by a mere few dozen yards away. (I wonder if any passengers noticed?)

The second bird was visible while parked at the same location, but not as nice a view. #2 was perched on the top of the base of a landing light well to the left (west), more of a greyish-white blob without a scope. Bird #1 regularly looked over at #2 but didn't seem perturbed.

#1 took off at 5pm while I was looking at #2 (don't you hate it when you take the glasses away for just 30 seconds and it's GONE when you look back?). #2 was still in its place 5 minutes later when I finished up and left.
