The Gyrfalcon was on Seybolt Rd (south of Seneca Falls) around Stahl Rd. It was first perched north of the large barns on Stahl Rd, but flew south along Seybolt. I was able to see it capture a Mallard in mid-air and start feasting on it. A red-tail hawk took over the kill, soon to be followed by a second red-tail. The gyrfalcon continually harassed them until it was able to reclaim it’s meal. Amazing show - guess it pays to be persistent, this being about my 6th try to find this life bird.
