Observation details

4th known Somerset County record. Juvenile which flew in to lagoon just before 7:05am and proceeded to feed constantly on lagoon by picking from the surface all while frequently, though it appeared only half heartedly, being pursued by swallows (not sure they knew what to do with it), this continued for the rest of my stay, still feeding when I left; poor low light photos.
