> On the way up to Swauk Prairie we watched a Common Raven pursue an American Kestrel. The Raven put in a mighty effort, but finally gave up at which point a Black-billed Magpie took up the pursuit. The two birds went out of view, but our guess is that the Magpie gave up also. Swauk Prairie had a wide variety of raptors.
> We were surprised to see two Snow Geese in with a large flock of Canada Geese along Masterson Road just prior to Red Bridge Road.
