It sounds like the photographer who posted the Harris's Hawk photo today first on the Colorado Bird Photography Facebook Page, took the photo last year, and NOT today. She wrote, "it was at St. Vrain State Park last year". Sorry for the confusion. Hopefully no one spent too much time looking for a non-instant bird.
At least the Crested Caracara sighting seems to be real, though birders haven't re-found it as far as I know.
