PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) — A rare snowy owl has been spotted at the Lake Pueblo State Park in the Pueblo area.

The Pueblo Chieftain reports the bird, typically found in the Arctic region of North America, was first spotted at Lake Pueblo’s South Marina on Monday.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife asks that bird lovers keep a safe distance when observing the rare bird and try not to disturb it when it is resting or hunting.

Wildlife biologist April Estep says the bird may stay in the area for a few days if it is not harassed.

It is the second snowy owl recorded in Pueblo County in southeast Colorado.
