5 miles NW of Columbia in vacinity of Roemer Lake off Creasy Springs Rd

7:00pm 4/15/08

Bird headed south, full (setting) sun, moderate height, (8.5 X 44 optics) methodical flap of wings, black mask clearly seen along with black patchs at 'wrist' on underside of wing: wings strongly swept back at wrist.  (4-5 second look through binocs)

I'd bet it is headed for Eagle Bluffs....   straight shot south from where I saw it.
