On a morning run, I was just NW of Fisherman's pond along the section line road were the BAEA was seen in a Cottonwood Tree. I first noticed the bird by its call which was an Osprey-like repeated keea keea keea ..., but less whistlely than an Osprey. A large raptor with a white head and tail and brown body and wings, yes, an adult bird and no brainer! Also seen were a few Cooper's one trying to chase down a Mallard, and a good assortment of other expected birds.
