Observation details

See attached photo! Seen from a ways away flying along the road like a harrier, at which point the size made me think a weird eagle. Drove right past it, and got a great naked eye look at it maybe 45 feet away. I stopped and hung around, and managed to get some shots of it. The bird climbed and circled towards Frank Channel.
