It was nice seeing you today.
After multiple tries, and around 2 pm, I finally saw the MOWA.
Initially, it was in a tree in the same spot you told me (between the two "Do Not Enter" sings) and then after almost 5 minutes it flew across the Center drive to a tree at the Northern Western corner of the Lookout hill; just few yards from the drive.
The MOWA stayed in that area for almost 20 minutes. Sometime it came down to the ground level. At one point, he just perched grooming itself just above the drive behind the portable restroom. And it was still there when I got bored and left.
By the way, it didn't make any sound during the whole period. It kept eating.
