Actual count; birds seen throughout the day, non-breeding adults majority, but also at least 2 juvenile birds with checkered underwings and overall darker plumage, & one bird that was entirely brown except for whitish belly. Today's preferred "victims" were the feeding/loafing flocks of BOGU.

1
large alcid sp.

close enough to tell it was a larger black & white alcid based on size, shape, wingbeat & speedy flight; too far to tell what species.

Actual count; several large flocks feeding & resting on water
