I had the pleasure of a chance meeting of Bill Tollefson from Cedar Rapids this morning at the East end of Terra Park in Johnston while I was using the life jacket shelter as a bird blind! After we watched the sky and visited a little bit Bill walked toward West end of the park. I heard two shrill calls and looked NE to see a MK coming toward me. It turned and went directly North over the trees and I was able to get one photo. Wow they are fast! I looked up and Bill was walking back toward me and I thought he may have seen it too. He had seen the MK as it flew North and out of sight over the tree tops. Great morning! Clayton Will Madrid, IA. August 6, 2019
