The continuing N Hawk Owl in the vicinity of Gooseberry Falls State
Park was relocated yesterday afternoon, Feb 11. However, it was not
along the trails near the visitors center or along the highway by the
Gooseberry River, where others have apparently seen it recently.
Instead, it was farther up the N Shore from there along Hwy 61, ~1.2
mi NE of the park entrance road. This is where the owl was first
reported by Harley Hanson in late December, and it is still the only
consistent N Hawk Owl reported in the state all winter. To my
knowledge, there have been only 2-3 other isolated sightings this
season of birds present for just one day.
