And at 3:45 as well. It flew from tree to tree a few times, but stayed pretty far from the road while we were there.
Also in the area:
1 light morph rough-legged hawk hovering N of rt 17, 0.5 mi west of dead creek
1 northern harrier at the farm on the corner of jersey rd and rt 17
2 northern harriers and 1 peregrine falcon wheeling over the field north of the intersection of jersey rd and goodrich corner rd
2 red-tailed hawks in the same tree south of goodrich corner.

>> As of 12:30 today the snowy owl was at the goose viewing area on Rt 17. It was about 100yards on the east end of the drive by the iron gate to the field . Bird sat for the hour I observed it. S flock of snow buntings buzzed it several times. No doubt greeting a fellow Arctic traveler. What a Christmas gift!
