How about between Miles City and Jordan? Just curious about any sightings this winter.

I saw one on the battlements(?) of the church on Main Street by the underpass a couple of weeks ago... it was a good sized and quite beautiful one.

I don`t really pay attention to them but because you mentioned it I saw one by the underpass probably a couple of months ago and around a building to the north. Actually saw it probably 3 or 4 times.

Thanks for the information. I heard they were moving south again this year, and was wondering about any recent sightings. I am interested in taking some photos.

I know that the sighting of snowy old in Miles City also occurred before the bad winter of 1886-1887. I hope we are not in for a replay of that.

Amorette, here is more information about this species. Their southward movement in the winter is more geared to a lack of lemmings in their normal habitat. This also happened a few years ago.

The only time I recall seeing any was the winter of 1949 and it was a doozy of a winter.
