      The juvenile CRESTED CARACARA found by Ron LeValley and company this
      morning (9/4) at around 9am was refound in the Arcata Bottoms at Mad River
      Rd & Miller Rd at around noon by Brian Acord in Humboldt County.

      The bird was originally found by Ron LeValley around 9am near the mouth of
      Jacoby Crk. He reported watching the bird fly northwest at 09:30. I found
      the bird in the Arcata Bottoms west of the intersection of Mad River Rd &
      Miller Rd perched on a fence post at noon. Rob Fowler showed up and
      photographed the bird through his scope just prior to the bird flying
      south west at about 12:50 and landing on another fence post, probably near
      Lanphere Rd.

      The bird appeared to be a juvenile based on the brownish color in the
      wings and buffy chest and neck. It had a distinct black cap and the facial
      skin was not bright red, but more a pale pink color. However, the long,
      non-banded legs were bright yellow.

      This may potentially be the same bird that was not publicly reported in
      Sonoma Co., that was seen by several folks on the Mendocino coast, and now
      is in Humboldt Co.
