Marla Mertz, Marion County Naturalist, tells KNIA KRLS News that few years ago, there happened to be a large influx of snowy owls traveling across the Midwest. Snowy owls are once again being sighted and Mertz would like to bring the awareness to all of us in Marion County. She says these birds travel on a food driven journey, are weary, hungry and surrounded by land that is foreign to them. If you happen to see a snowy, please do not get close as to interrupt the energy needed to continue.
