Deb and Steve Falkowski reported a Gyrfalcon near the town of 
Virginia on the 17th on the open mine dump hills south of town, on 
the east side of Manganika Lake.  It was=A0viewable by cross-country 
skiing (or snowshoeing) only -- there are no roads into this area.=A0 =A0 

GPS coordinates:

They also said they saw the bird on the 10th, and that it was sitting 
on the same perch on the 17th.=A0 It was apparently there for nearly an 
hour and then=A0flew north into town, so it may still be in the area.
