Observation details

Continuing life bird first found by Jody Wells at this location. First seen off the very tip of the spit, we settled in on the beach to see if it would come in any closer. The bird swam all the way in to within a couple yards of the beach and myself. We backed off in hopes that the bird would come ashore to roost for the night. The bird remained in the shallows just off the beach for the rest of our stat and did not come ashore, perhaps a sign that it is becoming healthier.
