Damien/all,Yes, as of this morning Mark and I talked to the people at the Sand
Operation on Herbert Rd, there is a large sand/gravel pile as explained in
recent eBird checklists that you can just see the Owl, if it is sitting up at
or near the top of the area there. Excellent optics will be a bonus, a scope
absolutely necessary. They are ok with people viewing from here as long as they
stay off the road and out of the way. I will go into more detail later when I
get back home and not pecking on my phone :,) Ruben, Victor and Alan sleuthed
this spot out as a potential area, and it seems like a reasonable chance, at
first light and dusk, yesterday being first observations. Word wasnt spread
farther until somebody could be talked to regarding people using the
spot.Michael ToddJackson, TN Sent from my Verizon, Samsung Galaxy smartphone

seen several eBird reports for the Burrowing Owl at Johnsonville. Has a legal
(non-trespass) vantage point been found? If so, instructions should be shared
with the birding community.
NOTE: Due to very high levels of demolition activities at the site, plant
personnel are on heightened alert for safety reasons. No access to the plant
site will be permitted.
