Snowy Owl in Hamilton County, IN

Eric writes: A Snowy Owl was reported in Hamilton County Indiana today.  So, a couple hours after the owl was first seen, Rob and I headed to the spot.  As soon as we reached the area, we noticed the big, white blob that was the Snowy Owl.  We watched for about 20 minutes but the bird never really came in too close for photos, although it was still a blast to watch.

My first Hamilton County Snowy Owl

The Snowy in flight-it was quite active while we watched.
I didn't expect to see much other than the Snowy Owl but there were a couple large flocks of Lapland Longspurs and a number of Horned Larks with a few Snow Buntings mixed in.  

A handful of the Lapland Longspurs we saw today.
