- Comments: "Initially seen flying west from vicinity of peninsula thumb across lake and around/into big patch of phrags. Seen short while later flying between phrags on either side of long, narrow grassy area directly opposite Wellhouse. Another observer saw it fly left to right. I heard rustling in phrags on both sides of me, then saw bird fly right to left (into area rustling noise on left had been coming from). Seems very possible there were two birds."
