Northern hawk owl
I saw it this morning! Had to drop a car off at the garage in Bruno, so when we were done I persuaded my husband to drive a few miles up to Kerrick where one has been seen regularly. East of town there's a fantastic bog and some nice rolling farmland and mixed conifer/hardwood forest. We located the northern hawl owl in an open field; actually I must give credit to my husband for identifying it first by the way it flew. I didn't get a good close look but I got perhaps the once in a lifetime opportunity to see both a northern hawk owl and great gray owl at the same time! I'll probably go back there this afternoon when we pick up the car, now that I know where to look.
