sunday afternoon i went up to waterbury center to look for that northern hawk owl that for some reason has settled this winter on gregg hill road. birders are all a-twitter about this and are driving from as far away as virginia to see this guy, who keeps hanging out in the same tree.
you know, for months.
it's not hard to find where. you just drive up route 100 into waterbury center and then you look for all the parked cars and people standing around with spotting scopes.
i came after skiing and i was cold and hungry and didn't want to spend a truckload of time there, but i did get to see a lot of people with spotting scopes, which i felt was worth the trip.
i'll go back later, because i live nearby and because i can.
