yesterday ( https://ebird.org/checklist/S72744805 ) and confirmed by Alex
and others. Extremely responsive to SBDO calls (alert posture), while
ignoring LBDO calls. After a couple hours of observation they finally
called for a few seconds, and I was able to poorly record a series of "tu"
calls. Slender appearance, with less hunched back than typical of LBDO;
size very close to KILL, in fact appearing almost slightly smaller when
seen together. Tiger-tertials visible. Relatively short-legged. Photos and
audio to follow."

yesterday by Dave Trochlell. Just east of the LM maintenance house and
you're coming up on the Wilkinson wetlands, I watched a pair of RWBL flush
up a stout-winged Buteo with almost Accipiter-like flight. Had short tail
with two excellent white tail bands. After realizing thru binos what it
was, I fumbled with my camera until it disappeared over the cottonwoods to
the northwest. I tried searching for it on Peach Road with no success.
Silent but no doubt on the id."
