Seen in dunes in the same general area as most of the LALOs. Larger than LALOs with dark black breast band and mask, and yellow on the face. When the bird took off it gave a couple of call notes typical of this species, I was also able to see the tail pattern when the bird flew. The central part of the tail was pale, while most of the outer tail feathers were dark except for slim white edging on either side of the tail. Unmistakable.

Exact count, at least this many. Groups of 16, 4 and 4. Well seen and heard. Initially a group of 12 individuals flew over us and landed in the dunes. I went to check them out and accidentally flushed them, when they flew I counted 16, indicating that the initial flock had joined another (smaller) flock. I walked on in the opposite direction, as I didn't want to flush the birds again. Along the way I found two more small groups of 4 LALOs. The first group flew across the bay and the second took off and landed elsewhere in the dunes. Both of the smaller flocks were well away from the larger group, and I am sure that they wereall different birds. I believe that later in the day others counted 16 LALOs at this location.
