It was also spotted by Don Clark and Ken Cox about 11:00 today on the ridge
east of the intersection of Otter Creek Road and Route 17. They were able
to photograph it before generously rounding up all the other birders north
of there to take a look at it. Several people were eventually able to get
a brief and very distant look at what was probably the prairie falcon in a
maple tree beyond the first farm on the east side of the road. It flew
north and everyone trailed after it. I eventually relocated the bird in a
tree on the west side of the road just a quarter mile south of the barn
where Jim and others had seen it and had a very good look at it. Long story
short, it can show up most anywhere on that stretch of Otter Creek Road.
Also look for Cooper's hawks, rough-legged and red-tailed hawks along with
bluebirds and horned larks.
