Observation details

Was very hopeful to find this species and had some great luck. The birds first flew by me as I was almost to the lighthouse, and I only then got a brief look. They were headed down the spit towards the mainland, and after twenty minutes and about a half mile I relocated them feeding on some seedheads. Great view in scope, then a couple photos as birds took flight again. Pictures are bad, but the wing patterns are fairly visible.
