 If you're lucky you might get the chance to glimpse a rare sight this winter.

The Snowy Owl has been spotted in the metro. For the past few weeks the owl has brought bird watchers to downtown Ramsey.

The manager of an apartment complex told KSTP the owl caused a traffic jam with so many people pulling over to see the bird.

The Snowy Owl is usually found in Canada. The bird's appearance here is a mystery but experts believe they've come south looking for food.
