Snowy owls sighted in Kandiyohi County, many other areas in U.S. this year
WILLMAR — Local birdwatchers have sighted snowy owls in Kandiyohi County, which is thousands of miles from the birds’ traditional home range above the Arctic Circle.
Shalese Sands, of Willmar, went looking for a snowy owl Saturday afternoon, acting on a tip from Josh Wallestad, an avid birder, that the owl had been seen in the same area for about a week. At her last stop of the day, she found the bird near the intersection of County Roads 10 and 2 north of Atwater.
