Comments:
Observed from 12:06pm to 1:26pm from Moonstone Beach and from the feeders by the parking lot. Drove to pick my sister up and was back from 2:23pm until 4:38pm and observed the feeders and walked the trail out to Osprey point and back. Entering as historical to avoid the duplicate counts from two lists.

**Rare; continuing group of two adults and two juveniles. When we approached the viewing platform at Osprey Point I realized there was a large concentration of birds directly in front of it and so we decided to go underneath the platform where we secured a great view of the Tundra Swans without quickly flushing them.
