Subject: SNOWY OWL - Renton, Update

I checked for the SNOWY OWL that was at the NE corner of Renton Airport
this morning at 12:00 noon. I could not relocate the bird. I did see
other birders with binoc's and a scope at Coulon Park and I think they
saw me (I had the Santa hat on) as I was checking near the airport from
Boeing property.

I asked some of my folks who work at the field and they indicated that
the bird was there yesterday, but had moved to the south end of the
field this morning around 10:00 - I checked there with no luck. Keep
your eyes open if you're in this area or south in the Kent Valley (who
knows - maybe Thais will get a SNOWY for her CBC!!). I'll post any
updates I get to Tweeters.
