We first spotted the bird at 10:15 AM from the Larimer County Landfill. It was perched on one of the tall power poles along Trilby, 3 poles east of Taft Hill. At 10:45 it left and Nick Komar relocated it 30 minutes later. It was perched on a fence post ~300 m east of Taft Hill and 400 m N of Tribly. At 12:05 PM it took off, flew over Taft Hill and then to the landfill before gaining elevation and disappearing to the west. Once again the pattern seems to be that it finds food in the Trilby/Taft Hill area, feeds and then heads out. Photos that I took at 12:05 show a very full crop.
