This owl was spotted by chance this day. It remained rooted to this spot for the most part for as long as we were in the area over a couple of hours. Occasionally it would be spooked and fly momentarily to other nearby spots. We reported it a day later to Mark Wilson of Eyes on Owls who confirmed from our photos that it was a burrowing owl, and the first ever spotted in the state of Maine. Mark came up on 6/8 himself, but was unable to find the owl.
