Now winter is the time to see the pellets of the Great Horned Owl in the snowy wooded area of the Port Washington Schools Guggenheim property, and maybe see the bird itself, which has been spotted as have been osprey. The woods and meadow can be reached going north on any of the crossroads connected to Harbor Hill Drive East of the Guggenheim School. Drivers on Middle Neck Road pass the meadow on the west side.
