Observation details

***Extraordinary rarity found this morning. Foraging in the main pond, resting down below the spillway, and eventually soaring high overhead. It disappeared from view at 16:27. Uniform gray underparts, small head and bill, long tail, near and crisp black line along trailing edge of wingtip, effortless, buoyant flight.
