Thanks for the post. Its presence has been reported all over ebird but no one has bothered to post it here where it was announced by Dave. I would have done so but I had a run in with hornets. Enough said.

There is a deep valley between this Red Trail observation point on the northern edge of the preserve (near a metal bench) and the location described on Facebook recently above the Mill Creek Road parking area. After close observation of the bird from the Red Trail, it flew across the deep valley and circled overhead for visitors at the original location. Bottom line is that the bird is still around, still actively hunting and feeding over a wide area with several good observation locations to which you have to hike at least a mile or more to reach. This bird is worth the hike.
