Jim Williams has been watching birds and writing about their antics since before "Gilligan's Island" went into reruns. Join him for his unique insights, his everyday adventures and an open conversation about the birds in your back yard and beyond.
Ramsey, the Snowy Owl named for its winter location in the City of Ramsey north of Minneapolis, most recently was reported from a location in southwestern Minnesota. The owl is carrying a small transmitter that sends location information via cell-phone towers. It had not been heard from for several days, apparently out of cell range. From Ramsey, about three weeks ago, the bird had moved to a point four miles south of Hutchinson. It should soon begin return to its northern-Canada home territory.
