large flock mid-bay North of the north loop of drive; were around a low island or vegetation mat, some sleeping, some grooming, some chasing each other and diving, but # a good estimate; with all of the activity and various orientations, did not get great looks at everyone, but none in flock appeared different.

large flock in pond just N of county line road; 3 attempts to count group betw 115 & 125; with all of the moving around, tried using photos - counts a bit lower, but 1 had head of bird flying in, so apparently I did not have all in pics, and turns out to be more difficult to see hidden birds when they are not shuffling around; saw 2 soaring high overhead when I was along N shore - may or may not have been in group when I counted. I suspect there were more than I was able to count.
