Friend of mine from Midland took this picture on the West side of Midland. Several have already posted pictures of it and most likely it will make the news. Pretty rare to be this far south.

In January 2009, a snowy owl appeared in Spring Hill, Tennessee, the first reported sighting in the state since 1987. Also notable is the mass southern migration in the winter of 2011/2012, when thousands of snowy owls were spotted in various locations across the United States. This was then followed by an even larger mass southern migration in 2013/2014 with the first snowy owls seen in Florida for decades.

Only problem with this is not many survive such a long trip, plus they have to compete with the huge number of wintering raptors. Rare but sad! From what I can find this is only the tenth one ever spotted in Texas.
