Miesville Ravine, on the Cannon River: several turkey vultures, r-c
kinglets, yellow-rumped warblers, blue-gray gnatcatchers; song,
chipping, and field sparrows; a Cooper's hawk eating a snake (or some
entrails!), a possible N. waterthrush; and a warbling vireo heard across
the river from the picnic shelters
again at the intersection of Hwy 52 and Co. 42, by the Rosemount water
tower: a Swainson's hawk--It perched in the same bare tree it used
yesterday, in the woods close to 52, then gave great looks as it soared
over the tower driveway and rose above the field to the east.
Also present by the water tower was a female Brewer's blackbird.
At the 180th St. marsh, a vocalizing clay-colored sparrow performed in a
small tree by the roadside, allowing good, long looks.
