Comments:
Cruise ship visitors on Rhapsody of the Seas. We found this bird cold and wet on the muster deck, easily caught it, kept it on my lap until it seemed less dazed, and then released her under our deck chair, keeping a watch over her until a steward took charge of her. He promised to release her at Cruise Pier 3 in Tampa, Florida, early the next morning (Feb. 25, 2018).

Very small and rather damp, so it may look darker in this back view.
