A Two-Hawk Weekend

August 11-12, 2012

It was  wet weekend at the cottage, but there was still good activity at our feeders. 

On Sunday we drove the roads around Little Cedar Lake hoping to see the American Bittern reported in The Citizen by Roy McSheffrey (no luck).

But we did luck into a young Red-tailed Hawk on a fence near the road that was not shy of the car.  We saw it again on Chemin Petit Lac des Cèdres and then a Broad-winged Hawk on a wire near the boat launch.  We saw other birds listed below and two Sandhill Cranes on the way home outside of  Venosta (third sighting!)
