Observation details

*Rare but increasingly regular in recent years. Adult bird appeared from the north, moving slowly south and passing the Bell Bouy around 12:55 PM. The bird then turned around and proceeded to feed with NOGA between the inlet and just south of the Bell Buoy for the next hour. It perched on the Bell Buoy for about 10 minutes, but slid off after a particularly large swell and disappeared to the south around 2 PM.
