Observation details

Found by Mark and Sheila. Observed from the boat launch first, then was allotted a kayak for closer observation. Tried my best to keep 50-100ft, but bird swam in closer multiple times, didn’t seem to mind me or any other boats. Harassed four times by HEGU, RBGU, and BAEA. BAEA was nearly successful. Observed foraging at surface on who knows what. Took a couple short flights (longest of which was about 30 seconds), but seemed tired. Many photos.
