I was out and about today, NOT birding, and decided to see if I could spot the Snowy Owl in the area of Sweets Corners and Gloria Road in Penfield before heading home this afternoon.
And, I did!
S/he was perched atop a small barn in the field directly Southwest of the small Gloria Road cemetary.
There is an access road between Salt and Gloria, that runs through the large field. I asked permission to drive on the access road, which went right past the barn, by the tenants whose landlord owns the land (off Salt Road).
I did not leave the car - my camera just takes good close-up shots. I drove past the barn slowly with my car window open, taking pictures. The Snowy was not interested in my car at all, but when s/he did look my way, I snapped a few nice shots.
