WILDLIFE WATCHING — Spring reports of snowy owls postponing migration back to their arctic breeding areas to hang out in Eastern Washington have continued into summer. Here's a notice from the Palouse just posted by Inland Northwest birder Bill Siems:
A Snowy Owl with a fair amount of dark mottling was spotted while driving by the Plaza exit on US195 at 9:30 AM today. The bird was perched on the tall light pole over the N-bound entrance. In surprise, I turned around and parked just under the pole to recheck and get a photo.
