Ohhhhh Bryan! People seem to be tee-heeing about where Belvidere is, but thank you for Jack Slagle's Northern Hawk Owl (NHO) report! I can't help but wonder if this might be the same NHO I saw almost every day for more than two months during my commute to and from work through Montgomery, Belvidere, Eden, etc. Slagle's NHO sighting is barely five miles from where I (and many others) saw the NHO between 1/5/09 and 3/18/09. I will look on Friday when I drive that way again. I'm afraid I can't deal with the e-bird thing, so I will leave that to others.

Greetings, VTBIRDers:

This just in from Jack Slagle, who reports a Northern Hawk Owl in Belvidere today:
> Around mid-day I was traveling east on Rte 118 toward Eden about 1/2 or 3/4 mile east of the junction with Rte 109 (where Rte 109 ends at Belvidere corners). The owl was at the top of a large balsam fir on the south side of the road (this is in the middle of the large wetland west of Belvidere Pond).
Best,
Bryan Pfeiffer
