I blogged earlier this year that Nebraska is west of this year’s Snowy Owl invasion. Over the past week, there have been two new Nebraska reports to add to the single one from December. The first was reported to NEbirds and involved an owl at Eppley Airfield in Omaha on 28 January 2014. The owl was apparently photographed. The second report actually occurred earlier, but just reached my desk over the weekend. Judy Blunk was the lucky observer and found the Snowy Owl, pictured below, 2 miles south of Daykin, Jefferson County, on 25 January 2014.
As I have often stated, please do not hesitate contacting me if you have the good fortune of stumbling across a Snowy Owl.
