WILDLIFE WATCHING — The snowy owl that's been hanging out on or near Mt. Spokane High School for the past month is showing no signs of giving up what must be a great hunting area — and a certain celebrity status.

Here's today's report from local birder Craig Goodwin, who's been having fun visiting the area with his camera.

The Snowy owl at Mt. Spokane High School was on a light post in front of Mt. Spokane Church yesterday afternoon before moving to the light poles across from the high school and then heading to the top of the small grain tower. A friend who is a teacher at the high school told me the students and teachers have been very interested in the owl and they plan to include it in their upcoming school newsletter. The school secretary has named the owl Henrietta.
