Sunset from our place Saturday December 9, 2017.  My pathetic attempts to show the glory of tonights sunset fell short.  It was more spectacular than I could capture.

Snowy Owl.  (Photo by Julie Harring).  This Snowy Owl was photographed in Rochester, Mn. today.  There have been several sightings already this fall in S.E. Minnesota.  This one appears to be either a female or an immature male, as it has a fair amount of grey/brown barring.   We had seen very few Snowy Owls before 2014, but have seen 9 Snowy Owls since then.  Some are predicting that this could be a big year for them to come south off the Tundra.

Tufted Titmouse, Lansing Iowa area.  We have had these at our feeders but only one every 4-5 years.  They are about the size of Chickadees and often hang around with them.
