The closest stop sign is over a mile away and the first traffic light is 5+ miles down the road. A visit to the grocery store is almost 30 miles round trip. It's quiet here; just the sound of toads and coyotes at night. It seems very still, but when you look close there's always something happening. Read on about a few things we've noticed over the past few years.

Prairie falcon

Saw one last week on the telephone pole.  A Red Tail hawk took flight from a nearby tree and this falcon took off.  It is much smaller than the Red Tail, closer to the size of a crow.  This falcon is considered one of the most aggressive in the raptor family.  It mostly eats birds caught in flight.
