This afternoon, Bill Stauffer and I birded around parts of the county. 
We found a NORTHERN HAWK OWL  sitting on a pole right at the junction of 
Aitkin County Road 18 and Aitkin County Road 5. It was a very obliging 
bird and was still there when we left. We also found a flock of about 
two dozen COMMON REDPOLLS along Aitkin County Road 18, about a mile east 
of Highway 169. Also seen: 4 ROUGH-LEGGED HAWKS and 5 TRUMPETER SWANS.
