I believe the Snohomish Gyr is back in residence at the same location it was
found last year.  At 4:00 p.m. today I found the bird perched at the very
top of a leafless tree in the middle of a green field south of Snohomish.
Take Lincoln St south from Second St in Snohomish(turns into the
Snohomish-Monroe Rd)   After 1.5 miles there are a couple of tall, leafless
trees off in the field on the right (southwest).  I wouldn't call this an
absolute ID as the light was failing and I had only my binos (a scope would
definitely be handy here).  I did note the heavy body, wings that come
noticeably short of the tail tip and the white foreneck.  I would guess it
to be a grey phase adult.
Anyone else seen this bird? Back me up?  Shoot me down?
