Snowy Owl Update

A snowy owl was still being seen from the roof of a parking garage at Dulles International Airport as of this evening. Earlier today the Washington Post ran a story on the sighting and the many birders who have gone to see the bird. The advice I have seen indicates that the best time to see the owl is in the late afternoon. During the day it tends to stay far away on the runways, but will frequently come closer to the garage as evening approaches.
