Continuing bird on the marsh trail, within the first couple hundred meters of the parking lot at the start of the trail. We first started searching around 6:00 am, but it wasn't until around 7:25 a small group of us were able to find it in some willows, presumably where it roosted for the night. We saw it for a brief few moments, then it flew out and around to the backside of the trees, not to be seen for about another 10 minutes, when it was refound on a branch out in the open. Here the bird sat for around 15 minutes as it preened. Over the next 10 hours, I was able to observe it a few more times along the first little stretch of the trail, and it called fairly regularly throughout the afternoon. It did its "kis-ka-dee" call a few times on one occasion. Photos and audio recording taken.
