ALBION – Orleans Hub has published several photos of Snowy Owls in Orleans County in recent weeks with the majestic creatures spotted in Barre, Lyndonville and Kendall.

One of the owls has been hanging around Albion the past few days. Jaime Brennan shared this picture taken on Lattin Road. Her husband ventured into the corn field to get a photo of the owl.

I’m glad he got close. The owls typically nest in the Artic tundra and winter in Canada. Bird watchers believe we are having a historic year with the presence of so many Snowy Owls in the U.S.
