Observation details

Did a low flyby east to west soon after I started my list. Later seen flying low to the ground above the ridge west of my location, then perched on the ground on the slope west of my location. It stayed on the ground in that area for some time (30 minutes or so?), occasionally walking about, I assume hunting ground squirrels. It left flying low to the ground toward the north.
