December 17, 2011 Nature Notes from Matt and Julie's Nature Walk at Arboretum  ネーチャーノート Spotted a Bald Eagle, Chickadees, Crows, Crow's abandoned nest, Didn't see the barred owl, which Matt had seen a day before yesterday. One of the walk event - attendees showed a snowy owl photo, which he had shot a few days ago or so. It was cool. The "Nature Notes Board" in the lobby of the Visitors Center also says, "A Snowy Owl was spotted at Arboretum on December 7, 2011." We've never seen a snowy owl.
