Birders found it first but using good detective work, I discovered the location of this northern hawk owl on January 3rd. I had just seen my first hawk owl of the season a couple of days earlier. I wanted to confirm location no. 2, so told someone I knew, to go have a look. They confirmed it. I could have waited and went to look for it myself but it was an exciting find. The owl moved down one street after a couple of days. This is a great location to watch the owl but the larger hunting expanse means the owl is moving around quite a bit.
