Robert Kelly caught this snowy owl near the border of Grundy and LaSalle counties.
``I have seen this bird 3 times now 1st time with a camera ready. Location is 2 miles NNE of Ransom IL.. Is this a very common occurance in this area?''
If my memory is working right, one or two snowy owls have been regulars around the area near the LaSalle Lake, the cooling lake a few miles north, for the past couple winters.
Still, it is a wonderful sight. Not sure why I think snowy owls are so cool.
I happen to drive through Ransom often, and if anybody knows the town well, drop me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org, I have a couple things that I wonder about while barreling through.
