Observation details

Flushed to another area of the reservoir as I wrapped up counting for this list. Gavin walked around the perimeter of the water and got a look and brought back photos. We then all followed up by hiking back and above the reservoir hoping to get a view from above. The birds took to flight at some point, though unclear why as we did not seem that proximate. They circled the reservoir several times and then eventually came back, landed, and took cover among the tule reeds.
