"Definitely possible if not probable as there had been one hanging around the roundabout between the two malls last week or maybe 2 weeks ago. Hanwell as you know is not too far away.  Nice sighting!"

Snowy Owl in Fredericton

Driving along Hanwell Road south of where it crosses over Route 8, we saw what we think was a Snowy Own land and perch on top of a telephone pole about 7:30 pm February 9, 2018Unfortunately there was no where to pull over and park to try to take a photo but perhaps someone else in Fredericton will see it and corroborate.It landed on a telephone pole on the east side of Hanwell Road and was just watching the traffic.See More

Welcome to Birdng NB! I notice nobody has commented on this, so I will give it a try.

Sharp-shinned Hawk (like the bird Sandra Bourque posted) is always a distinct possibility here in winter, but there are others quite similar. If you ever see it again and manage a picture, that can help immensely with ID. Failing that, did you notice other features that could help eliminate other species? For example, how big was the bird as compared to the crows that were chasing it, bigger or smaller or about the same size? Was the tail long or stubby? Anything along those lines could help us help you figure out what you saw.
