A snowy owl that has been hanging around the Evansville airport is now in the Hovey Lake area.

Evansville Regional Airport posted a picture on their Facebook page showing the owl as it was being relocated.

Officials said the bird was moved for its safety.

In December, bird watchers told 14 News the snowy owl is native to the arctic and is not normally found this far south.
