MITCHELL COUNTY, Kan. (KWCH) A snowy owl rescued from a western Mitchell County field.

It was put into a carrier by a Kansas game warden and taken to Milford Nature Center to recover.

The bird didn't appear to have any broken bones, but it was too weak to fly and gather food.

More of the birds are making their way to Kansas.

Snowy owls have reportedly been seen in more than three dozens counties since last November.
