Earlier in the day I got some photos of a hawk that seemed unusual on Fairview Road. The underwing pattern seems to fit Swainson's, but I didn't recognize that until I got home and looked at the photo of it taking off. The tail appears reddish in the photo, so I initially thought it was a red-tailed. I'd like to find out what others think about this one. https://ebird.org/checklist/S76029885
On Blum Lane, where a Franklin's Gull was reported yesterday, there wasn't a single gull this morning. In general, there weren't many gulls out in the pastures today. However, there was a good variety at the FedEx parking lot on Long Prairie Road.
