Observation details

**rare; just second record here and extremely rare in state in July, but a species I have been looking for here since the winter was excellent for them and because Gooseberry does well with over-summering sea ducks; female (presumed SY) feeding within 5 ft of shore by dunking head and neck underwater and coming up with seaweed in her mouth; many photos
