Snowy Owls

I heard that people have been seeing Snowy Owls at the airport in Syracuse. Our second trip there paid off. My wife and I spotted 4 owls. One of the owls was sitting on top of the tail of the UPS airplane. I could not get a good photo of that one unfortunately. This was the first time we had ever seen them and I can say they are well worth the trip. If anyone is interested in going, it is simply right off 81. As soon as you get off the highway and enter the airport road start looking. Take the first right which is air cargo road and follow that to the stop sign, ahead of you there will be a right turn into the observation area. We saw the first one just as we turned onto air cargo road.

I have seen a female snowy owl at the landfill on two separate occasions. Hope that they stay for awhile!
