Owl e-Bird Records for my Block

I’m grateful to the hard work of the coordinators for entering the data from the previous iteration of the Breeding Bird Atlas! I can see that a great horned owl nest, the species I’m looking for, was found in the block last time around. All of the other owl records in the block are on Wisconsin Point, unsurprisingly. It’s easy to see the spatio-temporal bias in the data here: most bird reports in general for the block are on the point, during jaegerfest! Looking at the data at this particular spatial resolution really highlights an issue like this, and is a nice “effect” of this kind of randomized sampling.
