• The bird is just off a side road and high enough that it doesn’t react to visitors. We had to wait quite a while though to see its eyes open. It had just done a head scratch with its foot.

  • I had made two additional attempts unsuccessfully in previous days so this was a great bird to finally locate. It has now been seen by dozens of eager observers. Because viewing is only to the south at this site, overcast conditions presented uniform light for me to work with, far better than back light.
