Finding location notification

I see "finding location" alot when i open my phone or turn it on from with the display button. It comes up in my notifications for 1/2 a second, then goes away. It might do that 2-3-4 times before it stops. I'm not having any issues that I'm aware of, but not sure why I see that so much? Can any one shed some light on that?

So, you get the message, not just the location icon? I am assuming it's an app you have installed which checks for location when unlocked. Maybe a weather app?
