Hi All,

Brenda Sabo, Kathleen McGinley & I did some scouting for the upcoming
Tumacanbac trips. We had a great morning - in addition to one Northern
Harrier and numerous Red-tailed Hawks and American Kestrels, we observed
the following:

Merlin (Prairie race) - near 24 & K Roads
Prairie Falcon - near 22 & M Roads
Ferruginous Hawk (dark rufous morph) - power lines at end of 21 Road near
gas plant
Female Rough-legged Hawk, Red-tailed Hawk (intermediate rufous morph),
Loggerhead Shrike - all seen just west of 21 and L Roads.
