This evening we found the Caracara very close to the '.9 miles west from
the fire station' spot.
Thanks to Don & Maggie Wheatly for sharing their find -- what a yardbird!

It was in the woods north from their yard, halfway toward the railroad
tracks, perched 40' up in a cottonwood tree, off the mowed 4 wheeler trail
(a old road). Start of trail: 10 T 0621835 5285104

We'd gone to where I heard robins that sounded like they were tiring of
giving alarm peeks. Twice I heard a creaking and rattling combination that
sounded unusual, almost like that of a dead tree rubbing against another
tree. Paul Baerny
joined me and spotted the prize. Mary joined us & we had great views. Later
it was in the same spot for some former locals, locals, and their friends
to see. That might be its roost tonight:
UTM: 10 T 0621967 5285186
Back at the car I listened to the Sibley Crested Caracara vocalization. The
rattles and clucks matched the sounds I'd heard.

Thanks to all who posted info from their sightings.

Now to finish that errand we were running when we happened to stop by
