Two have recently been spotted near the airport and another was seen in Plainfield.
Both were part of the New Hampshire Audubon Socity's Rare Bird Alert for Monday, Dec. 22.
The two snowy owls were seen in the vicinity of the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport on Dec. 15 and at least one was still present on Dec. 17 and 18.
The best place to look for the owls is in the parking area of the Aviation Museum located on the east side of the airport on Navigator Road, or at the circle off Delta Drive near Harvey Road.
Do not park on the perimeter road on the edge of the airport, or security will ask you to leave.
Also there, an American kestral was seen Dec. 19.
A snowy owl was also reported in fields along River Road in Plainfield on Dec. 18.
Snowy owls live in the Arctic but they are visitors to New Hampshire particularly when food sources are scarce.
Last year, an irruption of snowy owls brought them south and this year, a number of them have been seen, mostly at the seacoast.
