After failing to find the gyrfalcon yesterday, I returned this morning & located the bird. About 9:15 am it was sitting on top of a telephone pole about 1/4 mile east of the intersection of Oberly Rd & Snyders Rd. Two other experienced birders helped confirm the identification of the dark phase bird. After watching it fairly close for about 10 minutes, it swooped away a flew a few foot above the nearby farm field toward Oberly Rd. We were unable to relocate the bird.
