I've never seen a bird like this in our area before, but it sure is a good sized one! The barn swallows didn't like it so close to their nest :)

It's hard to see any colors or anything, but this is the best photo we have. I'm going to walk out and see if I can get some photos of it tonight.

We've seen it several times over the last few weeks here in North Dakota.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the quick replies! Haha yeah that is a funny place for them to be perched!

Here are a couple more photos I got of him/her tonight. I've been doing photography for many years but I'm just starting to try and photography birds. It's definitely going to take some practice that's for sure. I had a chance at a great hawk photo but I just barely missed my focus :/
