Clear, ~45-50F, calm.

When I arrived, I immediately saw two birders crouched down low just off the road shoulder, photographing the Swainson's Hawk from a mere 15 yards. The bird did not seem to mind at all and continued its obliging behavior for the duration of my stay.

  1. Number observed: 1

    Details: Very rare. Continuing bird seen and photographed by many. Stellar looks of the bird standing in a field west of Medway Rd. and immediately east of St Martin of Tours Cemetery. It spent almost its entire time searching for insects in this field, taking to 1-3 second flights a few times to move to a new vantage point or if it saw something interesting. Eventually it flew east across Medway Rd to the airport fence. After surveying for a moment while perched on the fence, the bird hopped down to the ground on airport property and proceeded to hunt again.
