This stately fellow was in a tree seen from the highway just east of Prest Road just now. Probably could be seen with a scope from Prest Road if someone were to pull over in that pullout just north of the overpass?

I have seen it several times in a tree next to the highway. The tree is by a large container used as a billboard at the east edge of the field in the Northeast corner of the junction between Prest Rd and Highway 1. You likely will not see it from Prest Road unless scoped. If you are driving from Annis Rd to Prest Rd westbound on Highway 1 it is the last cluster of smallish trees that divide the fields on the north side of the highway prior to the Prest road exit.
I’ve seen a Gyrfalcon along Highway 1 near Upper Prairie Rd as well. If it there, driving from Annis Rd westbound on Highway 1 towards Prest, just past Upper Prairie road is a line of very tall trees parallel to the highway on the north side of the highway. The Gyrfalcon prefers the last tree where the top has broken off and the thick trunk ends.
