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.
