Ken, et al:
 
I traveled to Baring twice in 4 days and found no owl last week.
 
On the 21st, I traveled to Baring twice in 1 day and found the owl both times...
 
Perseverance does indeed pay off.

Subject: Snowy owl, Baring, MO update, Monday 12/23

I arrived at the posted location west of Baring, MO around 10:50 Monday morning and could not locate the SNOWY OWL.  I traveled several miles in all directions to no avail.  I concluded that the owl's tail had not been properly "salted" so I left for home.
 
BUT, south of the junction of Hwy 15/Hwy 11 (on Hwy 15) there it was perched atop the 3rd utility pole ( < 1/4 mile) at 11:30.  Perseverance pays!
