Hi Ontbirders:

Did not see the Hawk Owl at the indicated location this morning.  I did see what appeared to be a redtail hawk at the noted intersection.  Drove around a bit and when I came back, the hawk had moved further into the field.  I may have just missed seeing the reported NHO as it could be hunting nearby or on a lower perch or hiding in the trees.  

PS.  I saw a reference to the WeatherNetwork page where someone posted a photo of a Great Gray Owl on Manitoulin Island apparently photographed in January 2012.  In case you happen to be visiting.
