During the Goose Pond Christmas bird count Terese Brost and I found a prairie falcon near the town of Westphalia in Knox County.
Initially it was seen in flight and shortly after we were able to relocate it more than a mile south of where we first saw it. Initially the bird was perched near the road but farm machinery spooked it to a tree well away from the road. After about 15 minutes the bird flu in an unknown Direction.
Checklist has the location and a photo of the bird.
