So I got the chance to see some snowy owls today.
Yay!

Have also learned that I do not like group birding. I like going either by myself or with one other person (helps with the bird finding...and to keep me from talking to said birds I find...).

Saw around 3 or 5 different owls at the beach. There's been a bit of a snowy owl explosion so quite a few people in the lower 48 have gotten the chance to see one. Overheard that New Mexico and Arizona are the only two states not to see snowy owls. No idea how accurate that is.

They are just randomly on the beach? I've only ever seen an owl once. I thought they were rare... That is pretty awesome.

I think the population for snowy owls this year were pretty high, so the juveniles made their way further south in search of food.
These guys just happened to hang out at the coast.
