Mark's post (below) prompted some in our birding group to rethink the bird we saw yesterday in the same location (late morning). It appears to be the same bird. Thanks Mark : - )

Mark's post and photo:
On January 16, at 4:40 pm, Janeanne Houston and I saw a juvenile Gyrfalcon on Best Rd, just south of Route 20. It flew up from the ground to a tree right next to the road. A crazy location, with traffic roaring at high speed in both directions as night fell. The spot does not look to me like a regular perch, being way too close to humans and heavy traffic. Keep an eye out as you travel through the area - this bird may be anywhere. And please be careful out there.
