Observation details

Continuing bird since yesterday. First seen at 7:20 on Avocet Point when it seemed to appear out of nowhere. It remained for the duration of my time. The Bald Eagles flushed it up with the large group of RBGU several times. Unmistakable bird with large orange and black bill, dark back, white belly. **Very rare.
