The white-morph gyrfalcon was just perched on the roof of building 1351-C. This is the West End Business Park at 1351 Kelly Lake Road, which roughly adjoins Southview Road and borders the river which flows into Kelly Lake.
A local birder, Grant Ens, just pulled up and also saw the bird with me just now. It just flushed to another building roof.
As per David Scott's Ontbirds post from last week regarding Kelly Lake gyrfalcons, sightings are by no means guaranteed; I have been in Sudbury visiting family for 5 days, have looked for the falcons each day, and today was the first time I have seen it.
Kelly Lake Road can be accessed by driving north on Southview Road, then turning left at the stop sign. Southview Road has a direct exit from Hwy 17.
