Observations

  1. Number observed: 1

    Details: solitary female resting in a cypress lagoon, occasionally giving quiet "werk" call, looking around as if expecting to be answered; female more or less stationary for several minutes, then began working her way slowly across the center of the lagoon; abruptly dived under the water and remained under for a couple of minutes, not seen thereafter; no obvious signs of injury or disease, nothing unusual except for a winter bird inexplicably present in early summer
