A Northern Hawk Owl was reported yesterday by Ted Gardner on the Muskoka Bird Board.  We found the bird this morning in the same area, in the field east of 
#1819 Falkenburg Rd., north-west of Bracebridge.  At 10:45 a.m. it was perched in a cedar tree 
at the south side of Falkenburg Rd. just west of the intersection with 
Beatrice Townline Rd.  The bird then flew south a short distance and perched in a lone deciduous tree next to the snowmobile trail that cuts through the 
field. 
(Some of you may remember this area from the owl invasion of 2001 when a Northern Hawk Owl and Great Gray Owls were found there.)
