Well said, Maria.  Neither the Owl nor the community have been stressed.  So many people have expanded their awareness and appreciation of birds, birders and birding as a result of this special bird.  I saw a number of youngsters thrilled by their experience.  They will remember it for a long while.

We drove up yesterday to see it, but the owl wasn’t seen by anyone yesterday.

I have rehabilitated a lot of animals, including many species of owls, but I have never seen a wild Snowy Owl and I would love to see one and to add it to my life list.

I plan to keep checking this list so that I can take another drive up to see the owl. Location knowledge is very helpful to me and to many other people.

All of the pictures I’ve seen posted of this owl show he or she doesn’t seem bothered by people coming to look. The owl is grooming, eating, flying to rest in trees, casting pellets, has good looking plumage and seems to have found a favorite roost with plenty of territory to spend the season in.

We talked with people in Queen Anne, and the bird being there didn’t seem to be ruffling their feathers either. The observing humans are quiet and behaving respectfully. There are just a few more people going for walks there than usual.

This owl being here is a special treat for a lot of us, and since it doesn’t appear to be bothering the bird, I think it’s presence is great thing to savor and enjoy!
