Continuing Zone-tailed Hawk at the Safari Park

I observed an adult Zone-tailed Hawk doing loops near the entry/exit building at the Safari Park at 1225
today. The bird shows an irregular white tail band and a broad black terminal band similar to the 
description of a Zone-tail provided by Nancy Christensen on October 6.  It also shows a small white mark 
on each edge of the tail above the white tail band.  I've posted a couple of record shots that exhibit the field 
marks noted above at:  The parking lot and nearby areas appear to 
be the spot to see this bird as both Phred Benham and Nancy Christensen have reported a Zone-tail at that
