  1. Hi. We are visiting Medicine Hat for Christmas. We will be here until just after new years. We are especially keen to see any of the following. Anyone know of any sightings within an hours drive any direction of the Hat, please e-mail information if you would, to adownie[at] Many thanks! Here is our “wish list”.
    Great Grey Owl, Short Eared Owl, Northern Saw Whet, Hawk Owl, Gyrfalcon, short eared owl, long eared owl. Thank you once again. Bruce.

    • Hi Bruce, I posted your comment so I hope someone will be able to help you. I did a quick search on eBird and none of those birds have been reported in that area this December. Gyrfalcon is possible during your visit. Here is a link to the Medicine Hat County page on eBird, showing this year’s sightings. You can use this page and others on eBird to search for what has been reported. Good luck!
