I was dismayed to see that the exact location of the Skagit gyrfalcon was posted here. I did not anticipate that. But now that it is out I would like to have everyone who decides to try for it  - please use some common sense.
You do not need to get out of your vehicle to see it. When it is there It is on an open perch close to the road  -people getting out, slamming car doors, setting up tripods for scopes or cameras, talking loudly, etc. are sure to cause it to fly
You do not need  a spotting scope to view it well - bins work fine  -I took several photos from within my vehicle without bothering itYou will be lucky to see it. I saw it only one time (when I got the pictures) and have not seen it since. I live not far from the location and check for it almost daily.I will be there from time to time to monitor the bird and the behavior of those who come to see it. I hope everyone will be respectful of this majestic raptor.
Thank you,
