A Barn Owl was observed from the bridge at Meeker Slough, Richmond Bay trail at 2:30 p.m. on January 1st flying south. Seen by two other people. It was later seen at 3:30 p.m. from the junction of the 51st Street path and the Bay trail. It did a couple of circuits of the marshes on either side of the trail, flying low and scaring up shorebirds before heading north. It appeared to land in some willows (?) near the Zeneca site adjacent to the Richmond Field Station. Not seen again. It was seen by several birders walking the trail.
