While driving into town last evening a tan colored mass flew across the road just in front of the car at about 15-20 feet above the ground.
This was on Township line road which is a good birding spot for raptors around here.
This bird flew into the woods on the side of the road. My friend along for the ride said size-wise it looked about "as big as a bunny". Certainly bigger than a flying squirrel. I think it was a screech owl as GHO's are much bigger. By the way I have seen this before-something gliding across the road at night about 15 feet up from one woodlot to another. It almost like you have to put a lighting rack on your roof to illuminate these nighttime flyers when you cruise around.
