A quick update - the hawk owl was present today at the same location, by the
side of the road and easily viewed from before 1:00 to about 1:20 when it flew
down the slope to the river's edge, apparently making an unsuccessful hunting
attempt, then across the river to perch on a low branch, where it would have
been very difficult to locate.
