Observation details

Adult & 1 young juvenile seen for 2nd evening on roof & crest of Balfour Lavendar Farms assisted living above courtyard where we entered building.Adult was darker, larger bird with much mottling, in bins I saw 3 bristly two-tone brown feathers over each eye.. Juvenile, a seeming almost uniform gray bird, some downy feathers blowing in light breeze, was sitting higher on roof nearest mature pines at end of courtyard above marshy area. Hooting came from male when he flew to crest of roof about 8pm previous evening. GBHcalls had previously and often been heard by me and other residents over last two to three weeks.On-going nesting activity reported by staff,esp. those working outdoors.
