After our trek up North to see the Golden-crowned Sparrow. Mark Junghans and I decided to check the Sherburne county location posted by Betsy Beneke, for Snowy Owls.  At 3:00 pm we were able to observe five Snowy Owls at this location, including a 1st year female Snowy Owl that was sitting on a ridge of snow about 40 feet East of CR 17.  Thanks to Betsy for posting these birds and remember that walking into the fields is trespassing.
