Observation details

perched on top of breakwater wall from 2:00 to 2:10 pm, near small chain link fenced enclosure. Large white bib on chin, throat; nape white; crown mostly white with thin gray bar. These features fit those described for juvenile male by D. Parmelee in Birds of North America species account. Underparts below bib (breast) heavily barred black and white. Photos (dim, through drizzle at 200-300 yards), will upload later. Bird disappeared while I was not looking.
