Observation details

Stunning bird!! First spotted flying along the slope of the canyon. The bird circled for a minute before turning and flying off toward the northeast. Unmistakable adult in full breeding plumage. Very long, thin tail streamers, pale belly, black cap, and clean, unmarked gray upperparts. Long, tapered and angular wing shape and generally very slender and delicate looking.
