The Owl was still around at 1:30 in the same place. Beautiful bird!
I was very disappointed with the harassment of the Owl that I observed
several times by both photographers and birders. Time after time the Owl was
being approached and forced to fly. I hope this disrespectful behavior is
not what is producing these beautiful photos that are often posted on
vtbird. Please keep your distance, it is very disappointing and sometimes
angering to such behavior.

Subject: [VTBIRD] Snowy owl in Warren
The snowy owl was sitting on the roof of a small shed behind the East Warren
Store (also called Schoolhouse Market) this morning at 10 AM. Someone with
a scope was getting pretty close. I hope we keep enough distance so the
bird is not disturbed and will stick around.
