Observation details

It was difficult to discern exactly how many individuals came into the two ponds over the course of the morning, as it was impossible to know if birds returned for secondary visits. Many visits appeared to be of birds taking baths and we would later witness the arrival of apparently dry birds, suggesting large turnover. Only a few female-type birds were seen away from the water and, of these, only one was sufficiently far away (~850 m) that it's presence was very likely unrelated to water. This water source must be sucking in birds from a large radius. Three adult males were seen at once and we estimated that females outnumbered males by at least 3:1 (probably more like 4-5:1). Many photos taken and DFL recorded a variety of calls (contact, flight, and chip notes).
