ALBION – Peggy Barringer has seen numerous photos of Snowy Owls posted on Facebook, Orleans Hub and other media outlets for the past month. She felt envious and wanted to see one with her own eyes.

She did a funny spoof of a Snowy Owl sighting that was featured on the Hub on Jan. 6.

Yesterday, she finally saw the owl in person while in Batavia. The owl was near the Genesee County Airport on Saile Drive. Barringer snapped a few photos. She says she didn’t have her good camera, with the long lens, but these are pretty good.

Another Hub reader, Art Graton, sent in this picture of a Snowy Owl he took on Jan. 14. The owl is by Barber Road in East Shelby.
