|This bird has been fairly regular in my yard for the last couple months but lately|
has been disappearing for longer periods. This was the first time I had seen her
for a week or more. Feb. 10 East Jordan.
|I'm not sure if these birds have little fear of humans or just poor eyesight|
since I was able to watch at close range for a fairly long time. The water
was very clear and shallow so I was able to watch it underwater for a
little while but would always lose it before it resurfaced. Feb. 9.
East Ragged Island.
