Observed two snowy owls today on Amherst Island. One on the KFN property 
and the second adjacent to the trail that leads into owl woods. No owls 
sighted in owl woods but also saw a single short eared hunting in the 
field on the east side of the trail. See link for snow owl picture.


Directions: Exit off Hwy. 401 at exit 593 (County Road 4, Camden East)
and drive south to the very end (Millhaven).  Turn right on Hwy. 33 and
drive 100 metres until you see the sign for the Amherst Island ferry. The
ferry (20 minute trip) leaves the mainland on the half hour and leaves the
island on the hour. Cost is $5.00 round trip. There are no gas stations 
on the island. There are restrooms on the ferry, and at the island ferry
