December 18 - Snowy Owl & Say's Phoebe

Today I took a ride west to finally see the long-staying Snowy Owl which has been at Merrill Creek Reservoir since early November.  To get good views it took a bit of a walk but the reward was fine looks at this immature bird. While it did not fly the bird was quite active in looking around, stretching it legs and preening.

Afterward we traveled into New Hope, Pennsylvania and after some time were able to locate the previously reported Say's Phoebe.
