He thought he saw a meal in the lawn, but it was probably the leaves blowing across the grass. Oh well....I'll bet he eventually found something after I left.

We've had a pair nesting in the wooded area behind our home for 10 years. Is there a group that tracks nesting pairs of RS Hawks in Minnesota?
