Seen yesterday on Magog rd, Searsmont between 4:40-5:30pm. Great views as it flew right to the group standing next to the road. I know things have been drawn out on the welfare of the owl. This is something different that I witnessed. 1birder with a scope hiking into the field with the woodpile & the land is well posted "No Tresspassing," another man hiding behind a little shed with binoculars & a camera. We should all remember going to see these rare birds or non rare birds is a privlage that can be taken away by a few careless persons. Please respect landowners requests so that when there are sightings we will be allowed to view these magnificent birds! I hope this doesn't fall on deaf ears!
