I live nearby in Concord and suspect it was the same bird that some of my neighbors reported last week. The bird my neighbors saw was happily feasting on roadkill on Powdermill Rd in Concord. This prompted the town to put up temporary road signs to alert drivers to take care.
I am thrilled to have this bird so close.
