At least that's what I think it is. This bird is not listed in my NE bird book, I believe they migrate through our state. The Osprey was the closest match I could find on the internet.
I went with my step dad looking for prairie chickens at Burchard Lake, I think we were a little late for them as we didn't see any, but spotted this and a few other things along the way. We even went as far as Humbolt, NE to Kirkmans' Cove, an NRD lake.
