I went to the intervale yesterday and today with no luck. I would imagine that the falcon would buy the smaller birds which are by the compost. Plenty of red tails and gulls. I ran into another birder yesterday who had said that he had not seen it that day.
Taj, boreal owl was seen in a arboretum on the right side of marie-victorin road, the road that runs alone the river, just south of the island of montreal. sorry for the short notice. you can call me at my moms toonight if you need to at 893-7521, no matter how late....
Happy Birding, Eric Cannizzaro

I saw this bird flying north from thetreeline along the Winooski. I hadn't yet read the previous posts, and prettyquickly settled on gyrfalcon based on size, pointed wings, and tail not quitelong enough for acciptors. My impression was of a light morph with overallgreyish/light-brownish appearance, but I did not get the close-up looks thatMichael et al described. There seemed to be RED-TAILED HAWKS dripping fromthe trees bordering the field that day. Also today in Shoreham there were twoflocks of approx. 25 to 30 HORNED LARKS working the cut cornfields borderingthe lake.Carl AandersonBurlington
