Photo: Snowy owl spotting
Reader Peggy Bourlier gave us this photo of a snowy owl she and her son spotted in the Sunset Hill neighborhood. She had this to say:
"My son and I went looking for the snowy owls that we've heard were in the neighborhood. Sure enough one was looking right down at us from the roof of a tall house at 72nd Street and 34th Avenue NW. We loved watching it swivel it's head.
A second owl was next to a chimney on a house at 75th Street and 33rd Avenue NW. At about 3pm we watched the owl on 34th Avenue fly across the street and perch in a tree. We've heard that they have been swooping by the Bluff --Sunset Hill Park--at sunset."
