KENT –  Bob Murphy was visiting family in Kent over the weekend and took these photos in Kent at Peter Smith Road. He sent the photos to his sister-in-law, Peggy Bropst.

The owl was hanging out in her front yard but seems to most enjoy sitting on a F12 tractor. The owl was seen there on Saturday and then for about six hours on Monday.

The owls typically nest in the Arctic tundra and winter in Canada. But in recent winters they have migrated into the U.S. in search of food.
