Barred Owl seen in Longview

Barred Owl (Roger Werth / Daily News)Check this article in the Daily News about a Barred Owl seen in the 30th Ave area in Longview WA.

Also, some locations in Washington and Oregon have reported sightings of snowy owls, which are rarely seen locally.

"Every few years the conditions in the Arctic force some of the owls southward to find adequate food," said local birder and Willapa Hills Audubon Society member Darrel Whipple of Rainier, Oregon.

"At any rate, northwest birdwatchers are excited to see these magnificent birds whenever an irruption occurs. About 25 years ago one of our WHAS members had a Snowy Owl perch on her rooftop in Longview and stay in the neighborhood for a week, creating quite a sensation for the neighbors and local birders."
