A friend took the trip to Polson this past weekend for a look at the snowy owls that have taken up residence in the area. He got a pretty good picture. He also reported several skunk sightings/scentings along Hwy. 93. Our first reports of skunks came from the Frenchtown area, then Florence, then North Reserve Street. The migration has since moved all the way to the top of Evaro Hill. With Erik’s report in the Ronan/Pablo area we can definitely see/smell that spring can’t be that far off.
