      > We went out today, and we spotted a Ferruginous Hawk in the same general area. After checking Suntargets road (Red-tailed hawks, Northern Harrier and several Ravens there, but no Ferruginous), we headed up Hwy 24 a few more miles, turned around and headed back. At MP 15, we spotted what looked like it might be a Ferruginous soaring on the North side of Hwy. 24. I remember saying to Joe, "Driveway - there - stop, stop!" He pulled over and we watched the hawk soar awhile, then land in a field after prey. We got nice looks with the scope and took some photos, then watched as the bird took off (more photos) and soared out of sight over the ridge. A life bird for us.
      > Thanks to Kevin and Scott for reporting their sightings, to Kevin for the great directions to yesterday's sighting, and to whomever has the nice, wide driveway at MP 15.
