The Snowy Owl is reported again this morning in the same area. It is
sitting on the bank above a drainage ditch at the intersection of Sutton
Rd. and Rixom Rd., which is about 1 1/2 miles from the 11432 Holloway Rd.
address according to Mapquest. If you don't find the bird there, driving
the one-mile square bounded by Holloway, Rixom, Sutton, and Hoagland
might be a good approach.
