Zone-tailed Hawk at Safari Park

Yesterday (the 17th) an adult Zone-tailed Hawk flew directly over me near the elephant show bleachers at the Safari Park.
I think this is likely to be the individual first observed in August by Sam Fellows.  Zone-tails have actually been annual or
near-annual at the park and nearby areas since the 1980s.  As this is the only regular location for this hawk's occurrence in
the county, I believe that it is still good to keep track of this raptor.
