Observation details

One seen on the fire road close to the convergence of the lower trail/fire road at the furthest end, closest to the beach. Two seen together, at the same time, on the fire road next to the pond just before the beach. Observed for 5-8 minutes. Walking back on the lower trail, one seen immediately at the start of the lower trail, most likely the same bird we saw first on the way out. It made short feeding flights up and out, and moved further down the trail several times in our line of sight before flying out and then back behind us. About a 10 minute walk further down the lower trail, just before the bridge, one seen on the trail for several minutes. Seems possible that this is a fourth bird. Photo by Rebecca Matsubara.
