Observation details

It was there and gone in a matter of minutes. I had glanced over the water and didn't see the bird. After turning around from grabbing my binoculars, the falcon was perched and scanning it's surroundings. I traded out my binos for a camera and grabbed the attached photos. After setting my camera back on the adjacent seat and hoping to look at it some more, it was gone. (38.145926, -98.490776)
