Observation details

This is the bird that has been seen in the Marietta/ Williamstown/ Willow Island area for the past several days. When I arrived, it was sleeping. After awhile it awoke, then did some preening while still lying down. Eventually it arose, did some stretches, and some more preening. The mouth stretches were especially impressive! A life bird for me.
