My non-birding son also observed the bird from backstage towards the
mansion. It was on a tree with long branches, but no top. He described it to
me and had identified it as an Osprey. We went over it again now and looked
at a field guide. He did observe that the bird had a dark underbelly in the
leg area as the white crest seemed to end mid-chest. He also describes it as
having an elongated neck and head. The light was getting bad though.
