- Comments: "Continuing bird... Did not see the RUTU foraging with the group of BLTU’s on my first pass thru along the cliffs. Finally found at the end of my observation time around 08:20 in the northern end of the large cove before the main path from the Fig Tree before it turns north. This RUTU’s plumage seems to be changing a little more since my observation on 2/15. Darker brown/ black appearing in breast patches, and head seems a little more mottled. White throat and belly with bright orange legs. It continued to forage on its own and not move with BLTU’s as they continued to move South."
