Red-footed booby partly continues

We returned to the base of the Imperial Beach Pier at 9:40 a.m. and the red-footed booby was still sitting on its favorite lamppost which is the post you can just see the top of sticking up above the left corner of the restaurant roof at the end of the pier. We could even scope it from just standing on the edge of Seacoast Drive. But within 2 minutes, while we were turned away looking elsewhere, the bird departed the lamp post and now we don't know where it is.
