Seen by 5-10 birders. Initially called out as BOGU, on closer inspection no leading white edge to wing in flight with dark mantle and very prominent white eye arcs on black head. Seen at 1/4 mile with 60x spotting scope from Nisqually Estuary Trail and Nisqually Boardwalk Trail. Smaller then area RBGU, darker gray mantle then RBGU with apparent tertial and scapular crescents. Black head, very prominent white eye arcs, red-black bill. When flying, white crescents not apparent between gray topside of wing and black primaries suggestive of immature bird.
