Observation details

First found perched on a pole at the fish house near the lake store. Bird was tame and taking fish that fishermen were throwing up to it. Eventually flew and circled slowly to the southeast getting higher - it seemed to be leaving the lake but I never confirmed 100% that it left. Juvenile frigatebird seemingly nearing adult female plumage. Ruled out Great Frigatebird based on combination of blue orbital ring, black throat, and white extending onto axillaries.
