I would park at the top of the (Southern) Gregg Hill Road Junction with Route 100 (Gregg Hill makes a loop, so there is a Northern and a Southern Gregg Hill intersection with Rte 100).
Rte 100 is a busy road and there are not a lot of places to pull over.
There is a plowed area at the SW corner of the Gregg Hill Road. That is a good place to park.
You can also try driving down Gregg Hill Road a little ways. There will be a field on your left. Between route 100 and the house at the bottom of the hill on the left, look in or near the top of every tree.
It has also been on the tree on the right side of the road just past the 1st driveway on the right.
If it is not there, then I would turn around and park at the top of Greg Hill Road, get out and start scanning at or near the top of every tree.
For the last few days it seems to like the top of a Spruce that is not particularly close. If you are standing at the plowed area at the top of the road, look South-East across the road and over the back of a good sized sign and at the top of the tallest Spruce that is not too close and well behind a number of deciduous trees.
If you don't see it there, I would (carefully) walk along the guardrail South and look both ways. It could anywhere in there on either side of the road
near or far.
If you are lucky, there will be other people all looking in the same direction when you get there.

Heading through Waterbury soon... Any suggestions for finding the Northern Hawk Owl?

We watched it for quite a while and it fed and acted just like the other chickadees. We wanted to post to see what others thought and if anyone had come across coloration such as this before. Is it just a leucistic or partially leucistic bird? Here is the link to two photos of the bird that we got.
