A visit to friends up near Kasota Prairie took me past a pair of Loggerhead
Shrikes harassing a Red-tailed Hawk on a powerline. These birds are being
seen in extreme northern Blue Earth County along 570th Avenue. Take CR5
north from Mankato (3rd Avenue) and turn west on 238th Street (there’s a
horse pasture on your left). If you pass over a railroad track, you’ve
gone too far. The birds were within the first 0.5 mile right along the
road. They appear to be nesting so please minimize disturbance.
