Previously reported rarity. Initially spotted by Doug Martin and photographed by Bob over the fresh water marsh on the inside of the Nisqually Estuary Trail or new dike. Small brown buteo with barred tail and white crescent on inner primaries. Later observed by all from the dike perched in a small Willow Tree along the Access Road that runs north-south from the Twin Barns to the old McAllister Creek Road. Observed at 1/4 mile with 60x spotting scope. Small buteo with barred tail and dark hood. This is the forth week this species as been seen on the Refuge. Hopefully it elects to winter here.
