Subject: SNOWY OWL - Renton, Update Date: Dec 18 13:03:34 1998 From: "Rob Conway" - robin_birder at hotmail.com
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.
