This dreary, foggy, raining morning had a nice surprise for us. As we were putting out our recyclables, a large winged creature swooped overhead and landed on the roof of our neighbor's house.
Turns out, it was a large Snowy Owl - about 16" high according to the bricks on the chimney - and it's unusual to see this far south, as its normal southern-most boundary is the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
My neighbor said one of the tv stations had a small blurb about it being sighted in Point Place, but I couldn't find it online. According to this website, it was Fox Toledo, Channel 36.
He's been on the rooftop about an hour as of the time of this post. We'll see how long he stays there - and in the area!
