I'm posting this on behalf of Tom Bolohan who's currently working on a construction project in Oliphant....just east of Wiarton at the bottom east area of the Bruce Peninsula.
Yesterday (Wed) afternoon he spotted a juvenile Swainson's Hawk soaring in a kettle of 80 or so Turkey Vultures right over the build site in Oliphant. According to Tom....the bird stuck out like a sore thumb compared to the vultures!
The hawk was last seen still in the company of the vultures headed south along the lakeshore.
