Calvin Lu was arriving as we neared the lot and he proceeded to the island.

About 2 minutes after she left, I found the bird along the water's edge at the far end of the lot. It was next to a small Palm tree near a floating fishing pier. I hollered for Calvin, who arrived a few minutes later out of breath.

We watched the bird from about 8:30 until 9:30. Gloria returned with her husband and an EBRPD ranger arrived, then left and returned with a camera. After lots of photos were taken, the bird flew, apparently toward the island.
A photo taken today by Calvin Lou is on the WFO web site:
