5.0 mile(s)
Observers:
Mark Robbins List , Michael Andersen , Peter Hosner List
Comments:
Very calm conditions, 45-50F, clear. With Mark Robbins, Chris Hobbs, Pete Hosner, and Hannah Owens. I believe I heard a Red-throated Loon giving male flight display vocalization. Pete and I both heard and ID it independently. Admittedly, this was odd to have a heard-only RTLO. I''ve not included it on the list as it''s a rare bird in KS and the ID was not definitive.
