Rare — we caught two snowy owls
in flight above a family neighborhood
flying spruce tree to spruce tree
of western massachusetts in late 2014

Bob,

Lucky you! I've never seen one and in fact have seen few owls at all. A boyhood sighting of a great horned owl in a Texas bottom land, an occasional silhouette in a tree, and last year the boys and I found a dead barred owl that had flown into the wall of a dilapidated barn. Yet, owls are a heavy totem in our house. Owen's initials are O.W.L. Arthur's are A.W.L. We like to say one is wise and the other sharp.

stay close,
mike

Mike,

. . .and Susan just saw another Snowy! a week ago flying over the snowy farm fields of Colrain, MA.
She was heading to the post office and the owl was daytime hunting for its own mail.

I love the family initials.

all's well, Bob
