Hello. I saw a melanistic Red-tailed Hawk this evening in Marion on Marion-Cardington Rd. between Smeltzer Rd. and Rt. 423. The bird was perched very close to the road before we stopped for a look, but it moved on to two other, more distant perches before we could get a camera on it. It seemed to be hanging around that area, though, so perhaps others could find it there in the near future.
