Snowy Owl in the news

Yesterday's Washington Post included an article about the birders seeking the Snowy Owl at Dulles International Airport in Virginia.

The article offers a nice glimpse for nonbirders into the birding community. I particularly like this bit:

Jan Meyer, 54, grinned, her red hood pulled tightly around her face. Birding, she said, is like antiquing. You search and search, mostly finding common junk, hoping for the bargain treasures.

“It’s a life bird for $5,” she said. A life bird for the price of one hour of parking.
