Observation details

perched on the north west shoreline right as the reservoir curves south here: https://goo.gl/maps/fSYMLFmPAjbVTzA37 We viewed it while standing on the north shoreline about a quarter mile away from the last parking lot. At about 8am it took flight and flew due East across the reservoir and appeared to land somewhat on the northeast shoreline. Flight photos show clean dark cap, with two strong white primary shafts but no others. While perched legs appeared a little more light gray, but hard to be 100% on color with the morning light, but it was clear that the gray in the underparts extended up from the belly and a little more to the base of the breast.
