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.
