Last year at my mom's farm north of Mitchell, there was a pair of swainsons hawks that nested and raised one young, but neither my brother Jeff or myself was ever able to locate the nest. This year 2 days ago I counted 8 Swainsons there and today there is still a pair. Hopeful they will nest again.
We also saw a short eared owl on the James River bottom grassland.
