[Tweeters] Crows and Snowy Owls

When viewing the Queen Anne Snowy Owl yesterday, I was struck by the lack
of crows hectoring it. I'd have thought that, say, a Great-Horned Owl or a
Cooper's Hawk in an equally exposed location would have had at least a
couple of crows making a racket.

We had looked for her unsuccessfully on Friday afternoon, and thought maybe
listening for crows would help us find where she had moved during that
hour, but didn't hear any while walking fairly extensively around the hill.

Do crows not recognize Snowies as raptors due to their rarity here?
