I stuck around the grasslands after today's field trip and waited at Fitzpatrick Rd until dusk. At about 5:30 Stacy Robinson spotted a SEOW perched on a brush pile. It took off hunting and gave us good crepuscular views for about 10 minutes. At one point it was hunting in the field directly in front of us. Not the great displays of last winter, but still a satisfying look at a year bird.
