There was a Northern hawk owl in Eau Claire through most of December and I kept hoping to see it when I'd visit town, but no luck. 16th time's the charm, though. A friend and I went over to the neighborhood the owl's been hanging around and, with a little help from some other birders, we managed to not only see, but also to photograph this little beauty. Definitely a life bird for me--I've been hoping to see one for, literally, decades.
