My brother Allan and I, and a mostly sleeping Audrey Hoff, drove up to 
northern Kentucky today (Sunday) to see if we could see the Snowy Owl. It was 
still present and very easy to find. It looked nice and warm in the cold wind 
- lots of feathers to wrap itself in :-) (other posts give directions)
Also present in the area:
Turkey Vulture
Am Kestrel
Killdeer
Mourning Dove
Am Crow
Horned Lark
Am Robin
Red-winged Blackbird
C Grackle

Photographers were in the area, including one who walked within about 10 feet 
of the bird, even though he had some good looking lenses on his camera. 
Birders, please don't try this. And don't encourage this. We had driven off to 
look around the area and when we came back saw the photographer out close to 
the owl.

It was about a 3.5 hour drive from Knoxville.
