We think we were less than 200 feet N of kiosk. Bird was seen on E side of trail, and was active almost continuously within 30 feet of fence. Viewed fairly continuously for 25 minutes. Four in our party saw the bird and worked on ID. Other passing birders contributed to ID. One who seemed most knowledgeable had found the bird independently earlier and was confident that it was either PSFL or COFL. Another played tape of both PSFL and COFL. Bird responded twice to tape of PSFL by approaching. Bird did not seem to respond to tape of COFL. Bird did not call. Bird was green on top, paler below. Eye ring was tear drop shaped, with point at rear. Bird showed an obvious crest, as expected for PSFL and COFL. Upper mandible black; lower mandible entirely yellowish-orange. Later research suggests that PSFL is more likely in this habitat than COFL, although both would be rare. Photos to be added when I figure out how to do it!
